HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - The Coast Guard says it's suspended a search for a missing Connecticut boater.
    
Coast Guard and local agencies launched a search for Daniel Strelczuk on Saturday after being notified that a sail boat was seen adrift about 3 miles south of Fishers Island, N.Y., in Long Island Sound.
    
The Coast Guard suspended the search Sunday. It said the search extended beyond the time anyone could survive. Officials say rescue crews searched for more than 19 hours, covering more than 740 square miles.
