A lost sailor . . .
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) -- The Coast Guard is searching in the Gulf of Mexico for a 77-year-old man who had been sailing from Baltimore to his home in Florida's Panhandle.
Craig Neus of Panama City has been sailing a 32-foot beige two-masted Bristol since June, intending to finish his voyage in his hometown.
The Coast Guard says Neus was last seen Nov. 4 when he made a purchase at a resort in Captiva. Bridge tenders north of Boca Grande have no reports of Neus' vessel passing under their bridges.
The Coast Guard says Neus' family believes he may have been sailing farther west into the gulf than he had originally intended.
According to the Coast Guard, the search for Neus by air and sea has covered 65,278 square miles."
