ANNA MARIA, Fla. - Authorities are attempting to contact the owner of a boat that has sat on the shore of an Anna Maria beach since last week.

The boat, a 27-foot Sea Ray, washed ashore on January 19th, according to the Manatee County Sheriff's Office.

Sheriff's office spokesman Dave Bristow says a notice of abandonment has been placed on the boat and a letter is being sent to the registered owner.

If the owner does not remove it, the county will remove it and bill the owner.
