DAUPHIN ISLAND, Ala. (AP) - U.S. Coast Guard officials say they’ve suspended the search for a missing fisherman 70 miles south of Dauphin Island.

The Coast Guard said in a statement that crews covered more than 655 square miles during the search for 33-year-old Carlos Ramirez Regaldo.

The search began after crewmembers aboard the fishing boat Scatterbrain reported that Regaldo fell overboard around 7:30 p.m. Sunday.

Agencies participating in the search included Coast Guard crews and assets from the cutter Cobia, Air Station New Orleans, Aviation Training Center Mobile, Alabama and Sector Mobile.
