The bodies of an elderly couple were found floating near the wreckage of a small wooden boat 10 miles off Avalon Harbor Thursday and searchers were looking for a third body, U.S. Coast Guard officials reported. The wreckage was spotted by crewmen on the excursion boat, Catalina Countess, as it returned to the mainland from Catalina about 5 p.m. Coroner's deputies said the man and woman may be a Hemet couple whose son owns a 40-foot boat.

The U.S. Coast Guard on Saturday called off the search for the body of a third person believed killed in a Thanksgiving Day boating accident off Santa Catalina Island that still has investigators puzzled as to a cause. "We have searched and searched and searched and we have decided no more further leads are evolving," said Petty Officer James Schweikhardt of the Long Beach Coast Guard station. "The case will be reopened if something develops." The bodies of an elderly Hemet couple, Robert Reid, 84, and Thelma Reid, 75, were found late Thursday amid debris from the wreckage of the Lucky R, the cabin cruiser owned by their son, Charles Reid of Long Beach.
