Coast Guard: Mayday call could have been hoax
Updated On: Dec 23 2012 08:16:30 AM CST
The Coast Guard is treating an unconfirmed mayday call received Saturday evening from a boat in Pamlico County as a hoax.
The search on the Neuse River near Dawson's Creek has been suspended for now, a spokesperson said.
A helicopter from Elizabeth City and a small boat from the station in Hobucken were part of the search.
The search will resume if officials deem it necessary.
