U.S. Coast Guard crews suspended their search Monday for a boater reported missing after a fishing vessel was found abandoned and sinking half a mile south of the Cliff House at Ocean Beach.
 
But as the day wore on, the whereabouts of the boater remained unclear.
 
The Paloma, a 38-foot salmon fishing boat registered in Santa Cruz, was beached around 3:30 a.m. Monday, scattering debris and possibly leaking fuel off the San Francisco coast, the city Fire Department said.
