BAR HARBOR, Maine (AP) – The Coast Guard says it is continuing it search for an overdue boater after finding his skiff in the waters off Bar Harbor, Maine.

The Coast Guard initiated a search Tuesday for Dr. John Myers of Freeport, who was last seen Tuesday afternoon after dropping off a sailboat in the town of Hancock and heading back to Salsbury Cove in a 12-foot aluminum skiff.

Search crews found the boat at about 3:50 a.m. Wednesday near Bald Rock Ledge in Frenchman Bay, but there was no sign of Myers.
