OGUNQUIT - The intensive search for the body of a Cape Neddick fisherman who has been missing since late Thursday is over, according to authorities.
Maine Marine Patrol Sgt. Robert Beal said the attempt to locate 51-year-old Billy McIntire concluded about 5:30 p.m. Sunday.
Beal said the effort to find the well-known tuna fisherman will continue Monday but on a less rigorous scale.
Beal met with McIntire's family members Sunday night and they indicated to him that they understood why the search would be scaled back.
"We will mix (the search) into our daily routine," Beal said. "It's a very close family and this is a real tragedy."
