The Coast Guard was searching this evening for an Atlantis developer who vanished from his boat on his way home from the Bahamas.
James Trindade, 54, was reported missing Thursday night after friends journeying home with him in separate boats realized he never made it back to Palm Beach County.
The U.S. Coast Guard launched a search and discovered Trindade's 38-foot Donzi early Friday morning circling in the water 38 miles east of St. Lucie County. No one was on board.
A salvage crew took the boat to the Coast Guard's Fort Pierce station. Search crews continued scouring the waters Friday afternoon and evening, according to a Coast Guard spokeswoman.
"We're still out there searching," Coast Guard Petty Officer Gretchen Eddy said. "Right now we're still hoping to find him."

Like they used to say at the end of roll call on Hill Street Blues "Hey ... let's be careful out there!"
