The Coast Guard says it has suspended a search for a boater missing from his 20-foot boat near the Perquimans River.
The boat was reported overdue Wednesday night and was found Thursday in a marshy area near the river's mouth. Search crews looked over 173 square miles for Roger Turner Jr.
The boater's wife, Susan Turner, fell overboard about 9 p.m. Wednesday and got to shore by swimming from one crab pot buoy to another during a 12 hour period.
