JUPITER, Fla. — After finding a paddleboard and life jacket adrift off the coast of Jupiter, the U.S. Coast Guard began a search for possible missing boaters.

That search ended Monday when the Coast Guard couldn't find anything to suggest that anyone was missing.

The U.S. Coast in Miami said the items were found Sunday night, five miles south of the Jupiter Inlet.

However, there were no overdue boaters reported or derelict vessels found, so the search was suspended.
