Search for missing boaters ends

November 14, 2003

Keaton Beach, FL - After Friday, the Coast Guard will call off its search for four South Georgians missing at sea.

After six days of searching, rescuers found the 20 foot Sea Craft capsized, four life jackets and unused flares, but no sign of survivors.

Twenty-four year old Matthew Hutchinson, 20-year-old Amanda Player, 24-year-old Jeremiah Giffin, and 38-year-old Dominic Giffin left the Keaton Beach Marina Saturday headed about 20 miles off shore and never returned.

There will be a community candlelight vigil at 6:00 Sunday night at the Lowndes High School Football Field. Individual memorial services will be scheduled for next week.
