KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine (AP) - The state police dive team is using sonar to search for two boat building students who went missing last week and whose clothing was found on an island off Kennebunkport, Maine.

The Maine Marine Patrol says two boats and an airplane were used in Wednesday's search for 21-year-old Zachary Wells of Burlington, Vt., and 23-year-old Prescott Wright of Barnstable, Mass.

They were last seen drinking with friends a week ago at Wells' home near the Cape Porpoise pier. Both are students at The Landing School, a boat building and yacht design school in Arundel.

Searchers found some clothing early Monday, and the search was suspended a day later. Police Chief Craig Sanford said it remains unclear how they got to the island, but there's no indication of foul play.
