The Coast Guard called off the search Wednesday night for boat captain David McAuliffe, 34, of Egg Harbor Township. But his family and colleagues from Sea Tow, a firm that aids distressed boaters in nonemergency situations, continued looking. A diver indentified the boat, which was discovered using sonar detection, in about 20 feet of water, upside down and partially buried beneath the sand in the heavily traveled channel, the Coast Guard said.

At a media event that featured city employees dressed as Winnie the Pooh, the Easter Bunny, Donald Duck, the Cookie Monster and Martin Z.
