Maryland Natural Resources Police have called off the 15 hour search for the 53-year-old boater.



Maryland Natural Resources police  are searching the North East River for a boater who went missing Saturday morning.

The search began around 2:45 a.m. when a good Samaritan reported an unmanned 23-foot boat doing circles off shore from the Turkey Point Lighthouse.

Natural Resources police are working with the Coast Guard and several local jurisdictions including Harford and Cecil Counties to find the missing boater.

The name of the missing boater is being withheld until relatives are notified.
