(Fox 35 Orlando) – The Coast Guard has suspended its search for a missing man off the coast of Melbourne that began on Sunday evening.
The search for 38-year-old Lloyd Chamberlain was suspended at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, following three days of exhaustive searching from Vero Beach to Flagler Beach, a spokesperson with the Coast Guard says.
“I want to extend my sincere condolences to the family and friends of Lloyd Chamberlain. The Coast Guard prides itself on rescuing survivors and returning them to their friends and family, which makes the decision to suspend a search and rescue case extremely difficult,” said Lt.j.g. Kathryn Weber, command duty officer at Coast Guard Sector Jacksonville.
