Police in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, have released a video showing millionaire businessman Guma Aguiar boarding his boat alone. The footage shows that Aguiar was alone.

Aguiar has been missing at sea for several days.

“At this point, there is no evidence to suggest that anyone else was on the vessel,” said detective Travis Mandell.

The United States Coast Guard suspended its search for Aguiar on Thursday evening, almost two days after his boat washed ashore. The boat’s engine was still running.

Police are looking at the GPS, as well as examining his cell phone records to see if he made any calls. A body found Friday near where he disappeared has not yet been identified.

Aguiar has split his time between the United States and Israel, and has given millions to Jewish and Israeli charities. He owns the Hapoel Yerushalayim soccer team.
