CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — The search continues for a 48-year-old man who went missing from his boat off the coast of South Texas.

U.S. Coast Guard Lt. Garrett Barker said boats, as well as a helicopter and a jet, continued searching for the man on Saturday.

The man, whose name has not been released, was reported missing after someone came upon his boat in San Antonio Bay, located northeast of Corpus Christi, on Friday.

The throttle on the 25-foot black-and-tan pleasure craft's engine was still in use when the boat was found.

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department is also helping in the search.
