Search continues for free diver

The search for a missing free diver whose boat was found adrift Monday continued Wednesday as Miami Coast Guardsmen took over the case.

Noah Cullen, 24, of Islamorada, reportedly left at 8 a.m. Monday to free dive near Molasses Reef when his 25-foot sailboat, Jubilee, was found adrift and partially submerged near Dixie Shoal off Key Largo at 3:30 p.m. Monday, according to the Coast Guard.

The search for Cullen, a 2008 graduate of Coral Shores High School, was passed to Coast Guard Sector Miami on Wednesday given that ocean currents would have likely pushed him toward their area of operations, said Sector Key West spokesman Lt. Peter Bermont.

The Coast Guard search continued to include the 87-foot Cutter Sawfish out of Key West, Station Islamorada response boats and aircraft from Miami and Clearwater, Bermont said.
