The Coast Guard has suspended their search Tuesday for two missing boaters on the Severn River near Annapolis. 
 
Natural Resources Police recovered a sunken boat in the Severn River. Searchers located a life jacket and decoys about 100 yards from the shore. 
 
Debris was found that matched descriptions of what the boaters had aboard their 14-foot boat. Coast Guard crews searched for approximately six hours and covered more than 50 linear miles. 
 
Boat crews from Coast Guard Station Annapolis, Maryland Natural Resources Police, Maryland Transportation Authority Police Department, Anne Arundel Fire Department and a helicopter crew from Maryland State Police are searching.
