MIAMI, June 22 (Reuters) - The U.S. Coast Guard has ended
its search for a Brazilian-born multimillionaire whose fishing
boat washed up on a south Florida beach earlier this week.
(Reuters) The Coast Guard said it called off the search for Guma
Aguiar, the 35-year-old founder of a Texas oil and gas company
that he sold for a reported $2.55 billion in 2006, late Thursday
The air-and-sea search spanned a 1,523-square-mile (3,944 sq
km) area, roughly the size of Rhode Island. But it yielded no
trace of Aguiar, whose 31-foot (9.4 meter) fishing boat, the
T.T. Zion, washed ashore on a Fort Lauderdale beach before dawn
Wednesday with its navigation lights on and twin outboard
engines still running.
