WESTPORT — The search has been called off for a New York boater missing since Sunday when the small craft he was aboard sank near Cockenoe Island, police said Tuesday.

The man, whose identity has not been released, was one of five passengers on the fishing boat that went down Sunday morning in choppy waters near a navigational buoy to the south of the island. He lived in Suffern, N.Y., according to police.

Three others on board the boat were rescued Sunday afternoon — one man was clinging to the navigational buoy near the island, while another man and woman were pulled from the water nearby, police said Sunday.

The body of another passenger — Juan Garbriel Valle Pineda, 38, of Spring Valley, N.Y. — was recovered Monday morning about 3 miles northeast of island. His body was taken to the Office of the Chief State Medical Examiner for an autopsy.

The three boaters rescued Sunday were all taken to the hospital after being brought to shore, and released later that night.

The search for the man who remains missing was continued by Westport marine police, assisted by Coast Guard marine and air units, until being suspended at 9 p.m. Monday.

At that point, the Coast Guard called off active search efforts, and Westport police followed that agency’s lead, police Lt. Eric Woods said Tuesday.
