FORT PIERCE, Fla. (AP) - The U.S. Coast Guard is searching for a man who went missing while paddle boarding off of Florida’s Atlantic coast.

Officials say the sister of 58-year-old William Morlock notified the Coast Guard command center in Miami on Sunday that her brother had not returned from a paddle boarding trip.

She told officials she last saw Morlock on Friday evening at the home they share in Fort Pierce. He had been preparing his paddle board for use.

Search crews looked for the man throughout Sunday night and into Monday. It wasn’t clear whether the search would continue Tuesday morning.
