ANNAPOLIS, Md. — On Wednesday, the Coast Guard suspended their search for a missing 21-year-old boater in the Chesapeake Bay.

Officials say the man fell off a sailboat Tuesday around 3:30pm south of Thomas Point.

Two others reportedly jumped from the boat to rescue the man, but couldn't find him.

Other boaters nearby then ended up having to rescue those two from the water.
