KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine (AP) - The water search has been suspended for two Maine students who went missing last week, with the only evidence being some clothing discovered on an island off Kennebunkport.

Police Chief Craig Sanford says divers completed their search operations on Wednesday, and that searches would resume only if there's new information.

Zachary Wells, 21, of Burlington, Vt., and Prescott Wright, 23, of Barnstable, Mass., 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 clothing Monday on an island that can be reached by wading at low tide. Sanford said it's unclear how they got to the island, but there's no indication of foul play.
