ANCLOTE KEY, Fla. (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard has called off the search for a 42-year-old diver who went missing. Authorities say Eddy Brunt II was diving with friends when he disappeared on Saturday off Anclote Key in the Gulf of Mexico. The friends called for help and the Coast Guard search for Brunt for some 43 hours. Crews from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the fishing charter boat Fat Cat assisted in the search. The Coast Guard says Brunt was diving some seven miles off Anclote Key.
