The Coast Guard suspended its search at 8:15 p.m. on Wednesday for missing boater Jason Henderson.

The search began August 14 when Henderson failed to return from a daylong fishing trip.

The Coast Guard conducted searches using C-130 Hercules airplanes and HH-65 Dolphin helicopters from Coast Guard Air Station Barbers Point. The Navy also searched using P-3 Orions from Patrol Squadron 9 (VP-9) stationed at Marine Corps Base Hawaii in Kaneohe. Together the Coast Guard and Navy flew 47 sorties.
