Coast Guard Searches Md. River For Missing Boater

KENTMORE PARK, Md. (AP) -- U.S. Coast Guard crews and local authorities are searching for a 34-year-old man whose boat was found adrift and unmanned on the Sassafras River on the Eastern Shore.

Officials say Andrew Bauer's 8- to 10-foot vessel was found Saturday night in the Sassafras River between Ordinary Point and Kentmore Park. Bauer was reported to be wearing blue swimming trunks, no shirt and no life jacket.

Maryland Natural Resources Police and Maryland State Police are assisting with the search.
