UPDATE: Coast Guard Suspends Search for New Bedford-Based Fisherman
NEW BEDFORD - The search for a fisherman who went missing from a New Bedford-based fishing vessel has been suspended.
The U.S. Coast Guard says the 55-year-old man went missing from the fishing vessel Miss Shauna Monday afternoon 25 miles south of Montauk, New York. He was last seen at 4 p.m. on July 3, and was not wearing a life jacket at the time.
The 28-hour-long search was suspended Tuesday evening. The Coast Guard says a number of their units, as well as ten fishing vessels, ran 22 search patterns and searched more than 4,200 square miles for the missing crew-member of Miss Shauna.
The 51-foot fishing vessel is owned by Miss Shauna LLC, based on Cape Street in New Bedford.
