Two Missing after Capsize

At 5:10 p.m. on Friday, March 9, the local sheriff’s office received a report that a 21-foot fishing boat had capsized near the north jetty at Gold Beach, Oregon. According to reports, witnesses saw a man in the water near the rocks at the north jetty, and thought a man may have been trapped under the vessel. The Coast Guard deployed a helicopter, a response boat, and two motor lifeboats to the area to search the area, and Curry County searchers scoured the shoreline. Approximately 122 miles were covered before the search was ended at 1:39 a.m. on Saturday.

The Sheriff’s Department searched the vessel after she was located washed up on the north jetty, and found no one on board. The two missing men are said to be Michael Shane Machado and Joshua Weibel, both of Port Orford, Oregon, 28 miles north of Gold Beach.
