NANTUCKET, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) – Coast Guard crews have been searching the waters for a fisherman who fell overboard off Nantucket early Monday morning.
The 36-year-old male reportedly fell from the New Bedford-based boat, the F/V Blue Wave, without a lifejacket.
Petty Officer Ryan Noel said the man was woken up for his watch shift but never showed.
“A search was conducted upon the vessel looking for the man,” Noel said. “When they could not find him, they let the Coast Guard know.”
The call to the Coast Guard came in about 60 Nautical miles off the coast of Nantucket and occurred a little after midnight.
The search continued Monday by air and by sea.
