The Coast Guard cancels the search for missing fishermen off the coast of Massachusetts


0

The Coast Guard on Tuesday evening suspended the looking for four fishermen that his boat sank off the coast of Massachusetts.

“The decision to suspend a search is never an easy one,” said Captain Wesley Hester, of the First District Coast Guard, in a statement.

“Our crews have been conducting continuous searches for more than 38 hours covering an area of ​​approximately 2066 square miles,” Hester said.

The fishermen were aboard the Emmy Rose, an 82-meter commercial fishing boat that sank Monday about 20 miles off the coast of Provincetown.

The Emmy Rose was on its way to Gloucester, Massachusetts from its native port of Portland, Maine when it sank.

“We extend our condolences to the friends and loved ones of these fishermen during this trial period,” adds Hester.

Coast Guard crews fought winds of 35 mph and waves of 6 to 8 feet during the nearly two-day search.
