Coast Guard locates overdue fishermen
The U.S. Coast Guard began a search for a fishing vessel out of Manasquan Inlet after a distress beacon sent out an alert early Thursday morning. The desperate effort began after the distress signal was sent around 1:20 a.m. Thursday, and now, two fishermen who have been missing for almost two days.
The Coast Guard received a report that a 51-year old crew member aboard the 73-foot fishing boat Connor & Michael was experiencing chest pains and requested a medical evacuation at 12:18 p.m.
The Coast Guard is searching for a possible mariner in distress after hearing a muffled mayday call over the radio Wednesday night. The other man was identified only as Dennis from Point Pleasant.
The sister of one of the crew, Milene Oliveira, thanked the public for their prayers and the Coast Guard for searching for her brother, Paul Matos, 30, of Bayville.
The cold temperatures making it unlikely someone could survive this long. "He was in the Navy (and) if there is a person who has extensive training with all of this, it's him - which is why some of us are still holding on to some hope".
On Jan. 31, the Coast Guard said, the fishermen, including Capt. John Zimmerman, departed from Safe Harbor in the Mayport area in a 34-foot fishing vessel "Jessie K". "At about the same time his emergency position beacon fired off".
"The boat was positioning about 42 miles off the coast of Manasquan".
Weather conditions on Wednesday night added another obstacle, but crews were able to add more resources to the search Thursday.
A Coast Guard HC-130 Hercules search plane from Air Station Clearwater was deployed to help with the search.
