PONCE DE LEON INLET, Fla. (AP) - U. S. Coast Guard crews have found a man who went missing while boating with friends.

Officials say 45-year-old Donnie Clark was found Sunday night about 22 miles off the coast of Ponce de Leon Inlet. He was reported to be in stable condition.

Clark was reported missing earlier Sunday while on a boat ride with three other people. The operator of a 33-foot boat contacted the Coast Guard around 4:11 p.m. Officials say the initial reports said that Clark was on a “bean bag” being towed by the boat when the others on board lost sight of him.

Crews searched some 500 square miles before finding Clark. He was taken to Station Ponce de Leon Inlet for evaluation.
