 BALTIMORE — The Coast Guard suspended its search Friday for a man believed to have entered the water Thursday near Sandy Point State Park off Annapolis. 

 

 Coast Guard Sector Baltimore watchstanders received a report Thursday at approximately 9 p.m. from Anne Arundel Fire Rescue stating a man not wearing a life jacket fell overboard from a sailboat. 

Coast Guard crews involved in the search efforts included:
A 29-foot response boat crew from Coast Guard Station Oxford, Maryland
A 45-foot response boat crew from Coast Guard Station Annapolis, Maryland
A helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Atlantic City, New Jersey
 Coast Guard crews searched approximately 11 hours and covered more than 75 square nautical miles.
"After more than 11 hours of cumulative search efforts by the Coast Guard, MNRP, Maryland State Police and Anne Arundel County Fire Rescue, the Coast Guard made the difficult decision to suspend its search," said Cmdr. Michael Keane, chief of response at Coast Guard Sector Baltimore. "This decision is never an easy one, and our thoughts are with the boater's family."
