BETHPAGE - A Bethpage family is desperately searching for their loved one after he went missing while boating along the coast.

Vincent Tangorra's family says the 56-year-old man is an experienced boater, and they are hoping that he will return to them safe and sound.

His brother, Ray, says Vincent was traveling to South Carolina to dock his boat for the winter. He says his brother experienced engine trouble in the Maryland area and decided to turn around, making various stops along the coast.

On Friday morning, his Jet Ski was found in the Cape May area, and later his boat was found near Avalon, New Jersey.

Ray Tangorra says he will be traveling to Cape May tomorrow to meet with the Coast Guard and other law enforcement officials to help find his brother.
