The Coast Guard is suspending the search for Sergy Estrada, the missing 22-year-old boatman near Galveston

GALVESTON, Texas (KTRK) — The Coast Guard announced Friday it has suspended a search for a 22-year-old man who entered the water early Thursday morning.

Sergy Estrada went missing after his 12-foot jon boat sank near the Galveston jetties.

Crews searched about 227 square miles in total for over 40 hours, the Coast Guard said.

Guards received a call around 1am Thursday that three men had fallen into the water after their boat capsized. Guards dispatched a helicopter crew and a boat crew to search for the people.

Around 1:30 a.m., a Houston pilot crew notified the Coast Guard that they had rescued two of the people from the water and brought them to shore. Paramedics transported the two men to the University of Texas Medical Center in Galveston. They were reportedly listed as stable.

The three people were reportedly in the water together for quite a while before a wave separated them.

“Making the decision to suspend a search and rescue incident is never easy, and it is only made after careful consideration of many resources and factors,” said Capt. Keith Donohue. “Having spent time with Sergy’s family over the past few days, I know how much they miss their loved one and I wish them the best during this difficult time.”

Officials say Estrada is 5 feet, 4 inches tall, weighs 180 pounds and was last seen in a green construction shirt and blue jeans. It is not known whether he is wearing a life jacket.
