WANCHESE, NC (AP) — The Coast Guard has suspended the search for a boater missing in Dare County for more than a week.

The Coast Guard says 51-year-old Jeffrey Paul McCusker has been missing since Jan. 31. His vehicle had been found at a boat landing near Wanchese.

The Coast Guard says McCusker had been in a 15-foot boat.

Sheriff’s deputies found his wallet and driver’s license in the vehicle.

A helicopter from Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City and a boat from Coast Guard Station Oregon Inlet at Nags Head had been searching for the man.
