Coast Guard treats search for fishermen as rescue mission

The U.S. Coast Guard said Wednesday that crews were continuing to search on the water and in the air for two fishermen reported missing. The Coast Guard said it considers the effort a rescue mission and that it assumes the fishermen put on survival suits. Capt. Oscar Diaz and his nephew, John Ansay, were aboard the F/V Mistress, which the Coast Guard said capsized and sank about 2.5 miles southeast of Block Island.  The Coast Guard said the crew of the fishing boat Captain Bligh responded to the call and found Diaz’s son in a life raft. >click to read<12:48
