  • Agnes left Capbreton Harbor at 7.30am Tuesday and his boat was found at 9.30am

Authorities stepped up a search for the chief executive of the Quiksilver clothing company Wednesday, after his abandoned boat was found off the coast of southwest France.

The speedboat belonging to sportswear maker Quiksilver CEO Pierre Agnes lays ashore on the beach of Hossegor, southwestern France, Tuesday.

He said the alarm was raised following the discovery of the empty boat on the beach at around 9.15am - some two hours after Mr Agnes had set off.

Local authorities say that they don't know if the Quiksilver CEO was on his own when he took off in his boat.

Boardriders Inc. released a statement saying it is devastated by the news, and given that the situation on the ground is still evolving, its statement will be limited.

Under the terms of the deal, which was slated to close in the first half of this year, Agnes was to become president of the combined company and lead what Boardriders called "a substantial part" of the companies' integration.
