PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - The U.S. Coast Guard has stopped searching for a possible missing boat near the Isle of Shoals.

The Coast Guard called off the search around noon Monday, less than a day after someone aboard a boat named the Whiskey Rose sent a distress signal. Officials say no sign of the boat was found.

Authorities say a person gave the name of the vessel and said it was taking on water before the transmission was lost. No other information was given.

The Coast Guard was able to track the signal to the Isle of Shoals. The group of small islands is about six miles off the coast along the border of Maine and New Hampshire.

Officials say they searched databases for the name of the vessel but didn’t find any matches.
