Coast Guard suspends search for possible missing person in water near Long Point

SAN PEDRO, Calif. — The Coast Guard suspended its search Wednesday for a possible missing person in the water near Long Point.

The search was suspended after no correlating reports of distress were received related to the overturned kayak and search efforts by Coast Guard air and surface assets yielded negative results.

At approximately 5:20 p.m., Sector Los Angeles-Long Beach command center watchstanders received notification of an overturned yellow kayak approximately 13 feet in length with the model Perception Sport written on its side.

Coast Guard Sector Los Angeles-Long Beach watchstanders dispatched a Coast Guard Station Los Angeles-Long Beach 45-foot Response Boat-Medium crew and a Coast Guard Forward Operating Base Mugu MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew to search for a possible person in the water.
