FOLLY BEACH, S.C. (AP) - The Coast Guard has suspended its search for a kayaker missing off the South Carolina coast since the weekend.

The search was suspended late Monday afternoon for 22-year-old Dean Britt.

Britt and 21-year-old Logan Brown were reported missing Saturday night after they left earlier in the day to kayak from Folly Beach to the nearby Morris Island Lighthouse near Charleston Harbor. Brown was found Sunday afternoon off Kiawah Island. Britt’s overturned kayak was found about two miles away.

The search covered more than 2,800 square miles and involved 15 federal, state and local agencies. The search involved two Coast Guard cutters as well as airplanes, helicopters and other equipment.
