BIDDEFORD, Maine — The Coast Guard has suspended a search of the ocean waters off southern Maine for a possible missing person after a kayak-style watercraft and inflatable life jacket were found.

Officials say a person found the life jacket shortly before noon Saturday floating in the waters near Wood Island off Biddeford. The orange watercraft later was found on the shore of Wood Island.

A Coast Guard helicopter and airplane and Biddeford police searched the area, but the search was called off at 2:45 p.m.
