The seven-day search for four missing boaters is now officially over.
The Coast Guard suspended its search at 2:30 Friday afternoon. The four boaters were last seen leaving the Keaton Beach Marina on Saturday. Their boat was found Wednesday 51 miles offshore, but there has been no sign of 24-year old Matthew Hutchinson, his girlfriend, Amanda Player, 23-year old Jeremiah Giffin and 38-year old Dominic Barros, all from the Valdosta area.
Talk earlier Friday that two bodies had been recovered turned out to be just a rumor. A candlelight vigil to remember the four will be held at the Lowndes High football stadium Sunday at 6 p.m.
