BOSTON (AP) — The Coast Guard has suspended the search for three men who left a Cape Cod marina on a fishing trip earlier week and never returned.

The Coast Guard says it and multiple local agencies searched nearly 4,000 nautical miles in Cape Cod Bay for the men over two days before suspending the search Thursday night.

Authorities say, Carlos Amaral, Dylan Amaral, and Mario Fialho — all from the New Bedford area — left a Sandwich marina in a 23-foot Wellcraft on Tuesday and did not return at 2 p.m. as scheduled. A friend reported them missing at about 7 p.m. that day.

Their truck and trailer were still parked at the marina.

No additional information on the men was immediately available.
