NAPLES, Fla. (AP) - Trevor Moore’s friends and family have called off their own searches for the missing U.S. Olympic sailor.

The Naples-based sailor was last seen June 25 when he left Miami’s U.S. Sailing Center in a 15-foot inflatable powerboat. The boat was found idling later that day near Dinner Key with Moore’s belongings still in it.

The U.S. Coast Guard and state authorities suspended their search for Moore last weekend after three days. Moore’s fiancée, Libby Patton, tells the Naples Daily News (https://bit.ly/1GV0klF ) that private searches continued through Thursday afternoon, when they called off further efforts.

Patton said she felt closer to Moore while searching for him on the water.

Moore competed in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. His family moved from New England to Naples when he was 7.
