Coast Guard Air and boat crews are searching for an overdue boater last seen near Gladis’ Hole, approximately 20 miles north of Port Mansfield off Padre Island, Tuesday.

Missing is George Young, 50, of Combes, TX.

Young was taken to the Port Mansfield Boat Ramp by a friend where he left at approximately 3:00 p.m., Monday, on a 29-foot blue skiff with the intention of heading north 15-20 miles and returning to the boat ramp at 9:00 a.m. Tuesday.
