Missing Boater Miami – Reynier Moreno Missing
Missing Boater Miami – Search ongoing for missing boater near Julia Tuttle Causeway After Damaged Vessel Found.
According to report a search is underway for 36-year-old Reynier Moreno, who went missing late Tuesday night.
U.S. Coast Guard officials said Reynier Moreno was last seen around 7 p.m. on Tuesday near Pelican Harbor Marina.
Family members and friends said Moreno is the owner of Hellkats Power Boats, a performance boat building company in Miami. They said he is an experienced boater who left Pelican Harbor around 7 p.m. They said Marino took out a boat he had just sold and was testing it.
The new owner, who was waiting at the marina, said when Marino did not show up, he alerted friends. His 30-foot boat with damage to its front starboard side was found near the Julia Tuttle Causeway between Miami and Miami Beach.
Multiple agencies, including the Coast Guard, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue, are involved in the search which is being led by Florida Fish and Wildlife.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission said they received a call around 11 p.m. Tuesday about a boating incident and a missing person.
A boat with significant damage was found and brought to shore, but it’s unclear what happened.
Marino’s friend Julio Labrado said “It’s weird because he knows everything about boats and water. It’s really sad, He is a good person, he helps a lot of people, he’s a hard-working man”.
Kent Ogilvie, who says he has been a boater for 50 years, says this is a reminder about how careful you have to be on the after.
If you know anything about the missing man’s whereabouts you should call Coast Guard Miami Sector at (305) 535-4472.
