MIAMI – Search efforts were suspended Saturday evening for a Olympic sailor who was reported missing after his inflatable dinghy was found near Coconut Grove, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

The Coast Guard said a boat belonging to Trevor Moore was found about 6 p.m. Thursday floating near Dinner Key Marina.

The boat's motor was running and Moore's wallet and other personal belongs were found on board. The U.S. Coast Guard said Moore was a member of the 2012 U.S. Olympic sailing team.

Authorities covered more than 510-square nautical miles and completed more than 29 search patterns before suspending the three-day search, according to the Coast Guard.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to the loved ones affected," said Capt. Michael Long, Coast Guard Sector Miami deputy commander. "Despite the tireless search efforts by multiple agencies and good Samaritans, we were unable to find Mr. Moore."

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission is leading the investigation.
