A prominent Florida doctor went missing while boating earlier this week – and his unmanned vessel was found on Thursday, officials said.
dr Chaundre Cross, 49, a radiation oncologist, was last seen Tuesday on his 33-foot Sea Ray called “Vitamin Sea” at a marina in Naples, officials said.
The ship was found abandoned in the Gulf of Mexico between Naples and Sanibel Island — that’s about 25 miles as the crow flies, according to the Coast Guard tweeted Thursday.
“Coast Guard crews from Ft. Myers Beach, Cutter Crocodile & Air Station Clearwater continue to search for a person in the water,” the FBI wrote.
The Collier County Sheriff’s Office said it was searching for Cross on Wednesday.
“He has not returned and his family members are concerned,” officials said.
Cross is a national expert in prostate, breast and brain cancer who, according to his biography on Genesis Care, has served as President of the Board of Directors of the Cancer Alliance of Naples.
