The search for a missing fisherman continues in Wakulla County. Authorities have found his boat, but so far there is no sign of him.

Fifty-four-year-old Ahmad Hussein of Tallahassee was last seen fishing near the Ochlockonee River around noon Sunday. Since then, four agencies have conducted a massive search by air, in the water, and on the ground.

Family members continue to hold out hope for Hussein's safe return, but Florida Fish and Wildlife officials say they must call off the search Tuesday night at dark.

They say recovery efforts will begin Wednesday at dawn.
