Coast Guard Releases Name of Missing Boater

We have new details about the boater who has disappeared in the Albemarle Sound.

The Coast Guard has released the name of the man they're searching for. He's Roger Turner, Junior.

Crews will start searching for Turner again this morning. The Coast Guard says, his wife Susan Turner, fell out of the boat Wednesday night. Roger Turner either also fell out of the boat when he turned back to find her, or jumped in to search. Susan says she stayed afloat for more than 12 hours by swimming from crab pot to crab pot.

We'll continue to follow the search today for Roger Turner.
