The agency says 39-year-old Jason Sill of Cape May Court House was last seen leaving a marina in Wildwood around 11 a.m. Monday. A Good Samaritan told the Coast Guard he saw the unmanned 23-foot navy blue pleasure craft drifting off the coast of Wildwood.

Responding Coast Guard officers found the keys still in the ignition with the engine in the down position with the throttle forward. Fishing poles were also discovered on the boat.

Sill, who serves with the Middle Township police department, was honored in 2000 for saving the life of an unconscious woman who was suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning.
