CRYSTAL RIVER (FOX 13) -

The search for a missing Crystal River boater has a happy ending. Efstathios Moumouris of Grand Island was rescued in good condition by a good Samaritan, the Coast Guard reported this afternoon.

The 51-year-old man was reported overdue by his wife Wednesday after he went fishing near the Fort Island boat ramp. Search crews located Moumouris' 16-foot boat nine miles west of the boat ramp early this morning, but Moumouris himself was not spotted until this afternoon.

Moumouris was being taken back to the Fort Island Boat Ramp for evaluation by paramedics.

A variety of Coast Guard, FWC, and Citrus County Sheriff's Office crews had spent nearly a day searching for him.
