Coast Guard Calls Off Search

The U.S. Coast Guard called off its search off the north side of St. Thomas at around 8 p.m. Sunday after it found no signs of “distress.” The Coast Guard received several calls starting at 6:45 p.m. Saturday that “some type of distress” had been spotted.

“There is no need to continue searching,” Coast Guard spokesman Ricardo Castrodad said.

He said earlier the Coast Guard hasn’t received any reports of an overdue aircraft or of anyone missing.
