overboard Search continues for missing boater

Coast Guard crews are focusing their search along the coastline for a missing boater in the Portsmouth Harbor in the wake of Hurricane Earl .
The Coast Guard said an abandoned motorboat was found anchored near Kitts Rocks at 2 p.m. Friday. No one was on the boat but boat keys, wetsuits and a license were found.
Cmdr. Paul Wolf identified the missing boater as 63-year-old Robert Schultze of Shapleigh, Maine. He said helicopters and boats were saturating the area Saturday.
Wolf said fog, not heavy winds from the storm, made the search more challenging.
