Coast Guard ends search for missing boater

The U.S. Coast Guard officially ended its search for a missing boater at 9 p.m. Saturday after a weeklong search. The Coast Guard had been searching for Anthony R. Russo, 28, since his mother reported him missing at 8 p.m. Jan. 22.

Russo, an experienced outdoorsman, had called his mother from his boat a few hours earlier to report that he was returning home after a day of fishing. That night, his 14-foot flat-bottom skiff was found overturned in shallow water near Venetian Isles.
