Coast Guard suspends search of 7 people in Cedar Bayou

BAYTOWN, Texas (KTRK) -- The Coast Guard suspended a search Tuesday afternoon for seven people who were reported missing in Cedar Bayou in unincorporated east Harris County near Baytown.

Crews spent the morning searching the area after they received a mayday radio call the night before of four adults and three children on a vessel that had taken on water.

They found no signs of distress before suspending the search, officials told ABC13.

The Coast Guard launched a helicopter crew and a small boat crew to search the area.
