The Coast Guard continues to search for a Colorado woman days after the dinghy she was on capsized after leaving a Key West bar.

Jewel Hammond is in her 30s, the Coast Guard said, and was last seen leaving Schooner’s Wharf Bar on William Street in the southernmost town around 2 a.m. Wednesday morning.

She was with a man on the dinghy who reported her missing after it overturned near Mule Key, a small island off Key West.

A Coast Guard spokesperson did not name the man, referring only to him as “the source of the report.”

According to his Facebook page, Hammond lives in Denver. A post on her husband’s Facebook page seeking comment was not immediately returned on Friday evening.

Security camera footage shows a woman who the US Coast Guard says is Jewel Hammond leaving Schooner’s Wharf Bar in Key West on Wednesday, May 11, 2022.

Husband Ben Fisher urged friends in a Facebook post on Thursday to pray for his wife.

“She was visiting her dad in the Florida Keys and was on a boat that capsized. She’s been missing for 36 hours. Please I need the prayer army right now,” Fisher wrote.

Hammond is described as being 5ft 5in tall and weighing 110lbs. When she left Schooner’s Wharf, she was wearing a black tank top and a red flannel shirt, according to the Coast Guard.

Anyone with information on Hammond’s whereabouts is asked to call Key West Coast Guard Sector at (305) 292-8727.
