MIAMI – The Coast Guard searched for a possible missing person in the Atlantic Ocean, near Juno Beach. 

A mayday call came into the Coast Guard Sector Miami Command Center at about 9:38 p.m. Saturday, which sparked the search. 

A good Samaritan later told the Coast Guard about an 8-foot dinghy that had washed ashore on Juno Beach that looked like it has been recently used. 

The dinghy didn't have any markings on it. 

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Coast Guard at 305-535-4472.
