ATLANTIC BEACH, Fla. (AP) - The year-long search for a missing Florida boater continues with investigators still searching for answers about the disappearance.
A Coast Guard news release says investigators are seeking the public's help in the disappearance of 49-year-old Bernardo Enrique Rubio Hernandez. He was reported missing Feb. 7 of last year after he didn't return home from a fishing trip off New Smyrna Beach.
The Coast Guard said it spent four days and $1.3 million searching over 13,000 square miles for the Apopka man. Authorities never found any signs of him or his 14-foot boat.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Volusia County Sheriff's Office, Volusia County Beach Patrol and New Smyrna Beach Police Department also assisted with the search.
