Search called off for American rower
LONDON -- British and Irish rescuers called off a search late Monday for an American doctor who disappeared while rowing across the Atlantic.
Nenad Bilic, 62, of Chicago, a retired cardiologist, set off on his 21-foot boat from Cape Cod, Mass., on May 11, heading for Bantry Bay on the southwest coast of the Irish Republic.
Late Sunday night, Bilic's emergency beacon was activated, indicating that he was 230 miles west of Ireland, according to the Coastguard in Falmouth, England.
A Royal Air Force rescue helicopter and two Royal Air Force Nimrod search planes were scrambled to search for the rower, but only found the beacon.
