One person was rescued from a nearby jetty and brought to the hospital.

The man was in the water at Frisco Beach near Hatteras.

The search resumed at sunrise Wednesday, but wound down after about two hours.

"We haven't had track of it or seen the boat since [May 26]", Coast Guard spokesman Jonathan Lally told the Palm Beach Post.

A crew on the 47-foot Motor Lifeboat managed to locate the second person and spotted him floating facedown and unconscious in the surf zone. "When they recovered from the impact, the man was nowhere in sight", the Coast Guard said.
