PERRYMAN, Md. - Authorities have suspended the search for a boater who went missing in the Perryman area of Harford County over the weekend.

The Coast Guard suspended its search about 5 p.m. Monday.

Authorities say county police received a call that two men were struggling in the water near the 2100 block of Park Beach Drive about 8:20 p.m. Sunday, as a large storm was sweeping through the area.

Authorities arrived to find one man out of the water. Crews searched for the other man for about two hours. The Coast Guard identified the missing man as 35- year-old Khaam Xairabong.
