Shipwreck debris on a Northern California beach near Pacifica prompted the U.S. Coast Guard to start a search on Wednesday for any missing wooden boats, but it was put on hold the next day when nothing turned up.

Boat debris along with shoes and clothing were found washed up on a beach midway between Pacifica and Point Mori about 5 p.m. Wednesday, KTVU reported. The word "Rio" was found on a piece of the wooden boat, according to a photo posted by the U.S. Coast Guard Pacific Southwest division.

The Coast Guard went to social media in an attempt to get additional information on the possible wreck.

Fox News reported that Coast Guard officials didn’t receive any distress calls in the area, and it was unclear if the boat somehow became loose or if anyone needed assistance.

On Thursday, the Coast Guard announced on social media that it was suspending its search unless it receives new information.
