HOUSTON — The Coast Guard, Galveston County Sherrif's Dept. and Crystal Beach Fire Dept. are searching for a man near mile marker 338 in the Intracoastal Waterway, near Crystal Beach, Texas.

Missing is Terry Millender of Crystal Beach.

The Coast Guard recieved a report from Galveston County Sherrifs Dept. that a 19-foot skiff had been seen steering in circles with no one aboard. Once the boat beached itself, further investigation revealed there were crabpots, some containing live crabs in the boat.

Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston launched an Air Station Houston MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew and a Coast Guard Station Galveston 29-foot response boat crew to search a 6-mile stretch of the waterway.

If anyone knows or has seen Mr. Millender, or has any additional information that may assist the search effort, please contact the Coast Guard Sector Houston-Galveston command center at 281-464-4854 or on the radio at VHF Marine Channel 16.
