Coast Guard Searching Waters After Maine Massacre Suspect’s Boat Goes Missing, Note Is Discovered at His House

From the waters of the Kennebec River to homes linked to the suspected gunman, the search for Robert Card pressed on Thursday night.

Card, 40, has been the subject of a manhunt ever since Wednesday evening, when shots rang out at two locations in Lewiston, Maine. Eighteen people were killed and 13 were wounded.

A search of Card’s home turned up a note, NBC News reported, citing senior law enforcement officials.

The contents of the note were not released, but NBC reported that investigators are trying to determine what it means and how it could be used to find Card.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Coast Guard is patrolling the Kennebec River, looking for a 15-foot boat belonging to Card that was unaccounted for. A vehicle Card owns was found in a nearby community by a dock, according to The Messenger.

Hours of searching so far have resulted in “nothing out of the ordinary,” Chief Petty Officer Ryan Smith said, according to The Washington Post.

On Thursday evening, FBI agents and other officers surrounded a home where several of Card’s relatives live in Bowdoin, the Post reported. The officers demanded entry into the home as a helicopter circled overhead.
