    A search is underway for a boater who was reported missing in the Florida Keys.

    U.S. Coast Guard officials are searching for 75-year-old Greg Thomson, who was last seen on a 19-foot skiff near Long Key.

    Officials say Thomson was reported missing Sunday around 8:40 p.m.

    Thomson and a friend were reportedly towing a 19-foot skiff with their 36-foot sport fisher when the boat broke down. The two notified SeaTow of their situation and requested assistance, but Thomson reportedly got frustrated and left on the skiff.

    Coast Guard rescue crews are searching for Thomson.
