CLEVELAND — The U.S. Coast Guard has suspended the search, Tuesday, for two people who were reported to have been seen on an inflatable raft approximately 500 yards offshore of North Kingsville, Ohio, late Monday.

The Coast Guard searched throughout the night with multiple assets covering a search area of over 120 miles and 15 hours of searching with negative results.

There were no reports or signs of missing persons.

The decision was made after a MH-65 Dolphin helicopter from Coast Guard Air Station Detroit completed its first light search at approximately 9:30 a.m.

The case is suspended pending any future developments.
