Coast Guard Calls Off Search For Missing Crewmember On Ship

BAYONNE, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) -- The U.S. Coast Guard on Thursday suspended its search for a crewman who went missing from a ship.

The crew aboard the freighter Ibrahim Dede alerted the Coast Guard on Tuesday afternoon that the man was last reported on board the 600-foot ship after departing Bayonne, New Jersey.

Coast Guard aircraft and a boat combed the waters between Bayonne and Ocean City, Maryland, without finding any sign of the man.

The ship docked in Norfolk, Virginia.
