The search began after an abandoned kayak was found off Nahant at about 8:09 a.m., Ruddell said. The search was suspended at roughly 12:50 p.m., Ruddell said.

He said the boat was found near Lodge Park and Swallows Cove.

“Pending further developments, this will be the last active search we have,” Ruddell said.

The Coast Guard asked anyone with information to contact them at 617-223-8555.
