Search for missing Master of Patty A J – Suspended

NORTH BEND, Ore. – The Coast Guard suspended the search for the master of the fishing trawler Patty A J, a vessel that capsized between the Coos Bay Bar jetties near Charleston, Wednesday.
The search was suspended at 7 p.m. after two MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crews from Coast Guard Air Station North Bend and two 47-foot Motor Life Boat crews from Coast Guard Station Coos Bay searched for 11 hours in conjunction with divers from the Bandon and Airport Dive Team.

Divers made a second attempt when the water was slack to look for the missing fisherman, but conditions around the vessel continued to be too dangerous. A buoy has been placed to mark the location of the now sunken vessel.
