The U.S. Coast Guard suspended its search for a possibly missing paraglider at 12:39 p.m. Monday.
The Coast Guard said in a statement that it searched the water off of Seabrook, New Hampshire through the night Sunday and into Monday, finding nothing. During the 18-hour search, crews covered 201 square nautical miles.
The search employed two 47-foot boats, a 29-foot boat, a helicopter and an airplane, the statement said.

People on the Seabrook beach say they're concerned about this sort of thing happening at this particular beach.
"This beach here, there's no lifeguards. It's like a private beach, but somebody should be around," said witness John Souboski. "It's kinda scary... you never know."
A person called 911 at approximately 7:30 p.m. to report a hang glider with a potential person in distress about 600 yards off the shore. The Coast Guard later clarified its crews were searching for a blue paraglider.
There were no correlating missing persons reports that would seem a potential match with this incident. As of 12:39 p.m. Monday, there is no confirmation that there is indeed a person in the water.
Anyone with information regarding the case are asked to contact Coast Guard Sector Northern New England at 207-767-0303.
