Coast Guard suspends search for missing 2012 Olympic sailor

MIAMI (AP) — The Coast Guard suspended its search Saturday in Biscayne Bay outside Miami for a missing sailor who was a member of the 2012 U.S. Olympic sailing team.

Coast Guard officials in Miami say they received a report Thursday evening about an unmanned inflatable dinghy adrift in Dinner Key. Items belonging to 30-year-old Trevor Moore were onboard.

Moore is from Naples and was last seen wearing a dark shirt and swim shorts.

Capt. Michael Long of the Coast Guard said in a news release, “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the loved ones affected. Despite the tireless search efforts by multiple agencies and good Samaritans, we were unable to find Mr. Moore.”

The Coast Guard and partner agencies covered more than 510 square nautical miles before suspending the three day search Saturday evening.
