The United States Coast Guard suspended its search Saturday night for 2012 U.S. Olympic sailor Trevor Moore.

Moore, 30, went missing while on his inflatable power boat in Biscayne Bay off the coast of Miami. Authorities located his 16-foot dinghy Thursday evening, containing some of Moore's personal belongings. The boat was tied up in mooring lines without anyone on board, Liz Barraco of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission told NBC Miami.

"Our thoughts and prayers go out to the loved ones affected," Coast Guard Capt. Michael Long said in a statement. "Despite the tireless search efforts by multiple agencies and good Samaritans, we were unable to find Mr. Moore."

The Coast Guard's search covered more than 510 square nautical miles and was aided by boats from Miami police, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, the National Park Service and members of the public.

Moore was a member of the U.S. sailing team from 2009-2012 and teamed up with Eric Storck to finish 15th in the men's 49er at the London 2012 Olympic Games.
