WANCHESE, N.C. (AP) -- The U.S. Coast Guard is searching for a North Carolina man who is missing with his 15-foot zodiac boat. 

A concerned friend of Jeffery Paul McCusker contacted Coast Guard Station Oregon Inlet Tuesday night. 

The 51-year-old McCusker's vehicle had been parked at a boat ramp in Wanchese since Thursday. Dare County sherriff's deputies found the missing man's wallet and driver's license inside. 

The Coast Guard has dispatched search crews aboard a helicopter from Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City and a 24-foot boat from its station at Oregon Inlet. Two private vessels are also assisting with the search.
