The US Coast Guard suspends the search for men and three children whose boat capsized off the coast of Maine



In a call issued by the North Coast Department of the US Coast Guard the man said the boat had toppled over and he and the children were in the water, trying to get back to the top of the boat. He said that if that failed, they would cower in the water.

The Coast Guard received the call at around 10:00 am on Saturday and searched for the missing four for approximately 22 hours in an area spanning 1,500 square kilometers, according to a USCG release. The search team consisted of Maine Marine Patrol, the Wells Police Department and other local participants.

The search was canceled on Sunday at 8 o'clock in the morning.

"We used every resource available to us and made an extraordinary search to find these boaters, so if anyone was in trouble, we gave them the best chance of salvation," said Cmdr. James McLay, search and rescue mission coordinator for Northern New England.
