KAHUKU, Hawaii (AP) - The Coast Guard has suspended its search for a tourist from Colorado who was reported missing after surfing off Oahu's North Shore.
Fifty-one-year-old Robert Rumburg is from the Denver suburb of Arvada.
The Coast Guard and Honolulu firefighters began searching for him Wednesday night after he was reported missing near Sunset Beach.
Petty officer Anthony L. Soto says the Coast Guard search was suspended about 6 p.m. Friday pending any further information, after crews scanned a 3,155-mile area.
Authorities said Rumburg was scheduled to fly to Colorado that night. Friends reported him missing after finding his wallet, keys and rental car still at their home.
A surf board he borrowed washed up on shore Wednesday night.
