Coast Guard suspends search for missing Westport vessel

The Coast Guard suspended the search for the fishing boat F/V Evening and her two crew, homeported out of Westport, on Wednesday morning after several days of searching. The search began Sunday for the fishing boat when a family member reported them overdue returning, according to Coast Guard public affairs specialist Petty Officer 2nd Class Steve Strohmaier. “Coast Guard members at Station Grays Harbor in Westport received a call from the daughter of one the men stating their father was already supposed to have returned home from the fishing trip,” Strohmaier said in an email. “She was not sure of their intended destination, so the Coast Guard had a wide search area.” >>click to read<< 09:33
