COLUMBIA – A helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City was assisting Thursday in the search for a boater who is reportedly missing in the waters south of the Albemarle Sound.

Coast Guard officials said the aircrew was searching for a man in the Little Alligator River near Fort Landing. The agency responded after receiving a call about noon that a 17-foot skiff had been found unmanned and moving in circles.

Two N.C. Marine Patrol crews and a Tyrrell County Fire Department boat crew were also participating in the search.
