The Coast Guard is searching off the coast of York after someone reported finding a sunken vessel Thursday morning.

Crews are searching an area north of York Harbor near Long Sands Beach where debris was seen in the water.

A helicopter and a small boat were sent to the area just before 9 o'clock.

The Coast Guard says they are treating this as a search although they have no confirmation that a person is in the water.

Officials are also trying to determine whether the boat that sank is the same boat that ran aground in the area Wednesday.
