PORT HURON, Mich. (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard has suspended its search for a 19-year-old man who disappeared in the St. Clair River during the annual Float Down event on the U.S.-Canada border waterway.

Chief Petty Officer Gabriel Settel said late Monday it’s a difficult decision but the Coast Guard and its partners “have exhausted all available resources” with the information available.

Brady Morton, of Fenton, was among the participants in Sunday’s event. Petty Officer Christopher Yaw says people saw Morton leave his flotation device and disappear under the surface. A Coast Guard helicopter and boats from several agencies were involved in the search.

People in tubes and rafts entered the U.S.-Canada border river Sunday at Lighthouse Beach in Port Huron, about 55 miles northeast of Detroit. They exited at Chrysler Beach in Marysville.

Lawyers for Odeh urged a judge Tuesday, Oct. 21, 2014, to bar any reference to terrorism at her upcoming trial on immigration charges. Odeh's trial is set for Nov. 4. If convicted, she would lose U.S. citizenship and likely be deported. (AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast, File)
