MIAMI, FL – The search for a man missing after a boat crash off Key Biscayne has been called off, the United States Coast Guard said.
According to the Miami Herald, the man has been identified as 33-year-old Spencer McClain Sheridan of Yorba Linda, California. He was a passenger on an 18-foot Robalo center console that crashed into another boat near Bear Cut Channel in Biscayne Bay at about 7:30 Monday night.
Sheridan had been the subject of a search by the Coast Guard, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, as well as Miami rescue crews.
Six other people who were on Sheridan’s boat as well as the driver of the other vessel were hospitalized with injuries that were not considered life-threatening.
The Coast Guard said the search covered 1,200 square miles before it was called off Thursday night.
