The U.S. Coast Guard is searching for a Florida boater after his vessel washed ashore in Melbourne Beach with the motor running Wednesday night.

Officials say 68-year old Dave Hossfield left his home in Vero Beach on Wednesday morning to pick up his boat from dry storage at a marina in Fort Pierce and has not been heard from since.

Family members say Hossfield is an avid fisherman. The Brevard County Sheriff's Office and the FWC are assisting in the search.
