The search in Long Cove near Tenants Harbor today for Paul Benner, 33, of Thomaston, who was reported missing last night a little before 11 p.m., January 4, has been suspended, according to the U.S. Coast Guard, at 7 p.m., January 5.

According to authorities, Paul Benner, 33, left from the Long Cove Boat Ramp to clam on Clark Island, but did not return.

The marine patrol, the Knox County Sheriff's Office, the Coast Guard, local fire departments and private individuals turned out Thursday night for the search.

We're told Benner went clamming in a 16-foot-skiff at around 6:30 last night in the blizzard.

The Marine Patrol and local boat owners also joined the search Friday, Hampton said.

His skiff has already been found.

A Coast Guard helicopter and boat are taking part in the search. Marine Patrol temporarily suspended the search overnight but resumed it today at daylight.

Rescue crews in ME searching for a man who went missing while on a clamming trip near Long Cove Thursday night during a massive snowstorm that battered the region said they have found an unmanned skiff adrift. By early Friday morning, seas between Long Cove Road and Clark Island had subsided to about 2 feet.

The Maine State Police/Marine Patrol Dive Team has been called in to participate in the search. "The search will continue in the coming days in and around Long Cove as weather permits". Benner's father reported him overdue at about 11 p.m., prompting the multi-agency search, according to Maine Marine Patrol Sgt. Matt Talbot.
