Hollywood boat captain lost at sea

The U.S. Coast Guard spent Sunday searching for a Hollywood man missing since Saturday off the Gulf Coast of Florida.

Lindsay Forde, 48, had been hired to captain a 46-foot pleasure boat about 75 miles west of Bayport in Hernando County, according to the Coast Guard. The boat’s owner, Michael Swindle, reported Forde missing at 6:37 p.m. Saturday, the Coast Guard said.

Swindle told the Coast Guard he had gone below deck, and Forde was gone when he returned. Forde reportedly wasn’t wearing a life jacket.

The boat was motoring in six- to eight-foot seas with 27-knot winds and scattered thunderstorms in the Gulf of Mexico.”It definitely wasn’t calm,” Petty Officer Tasha Tully said. “The boat was rockin’.”

The Coast Guard escorted Swindle and the boat to Tarpon Springs. Forde lives with his wife, Elizabeth, and a young son on Harrison Street in east Hollywood.

Forde is an experienced captain, said Captain Tom Zsak who runs the Happy Day Today charter boat out of Bahia Mar in Fort Lauderdale.
