The Sarasota Co sheriffs office is asking the public for help in finding a boater who has been missing since Monday afternoon.

50-year-old Todd Battaglino, who his family described as an avid boater who often goes offshore, was last in contact around 3 oclock Monday.

He launched from Royal Marina in Englewood in his 20′ Parker boat named ‘Wendy B.’

Anyone with information is asked to call police.
