Desperate search for missing fishing boat off New Jersey coast

Desperate search for missing fishing boat off New Jersey coast

A distress call from the 46-foot fishing boat Queen Ann's Revenge went out at 1:20 a.m. February 8 about 40 miles off the Barnegat coast.

Barresi said a Coast Guard Jayhawk helicopter will be deployed Thursday, weather conditions permitting.

Twenty minutes later, the third mayday came in but the Coast Guard couldn't get in touch with the boater and no other information was given with the distress call, making it hard for searchers to pinpoint a location. The desperate effort began after the distress signal was sent around 1:20 a.m. Thursday, and now, two fishermen who have been missing for almost two days. The other man was identified only as Dennis from Point Pleasant.

The search for a missing fishing boat and its crew has ended after more than a day of unsuccessful attempts at locating it.

Matos' sister, Milene Oliveira, told NJ Advance Media that family and friends were becoming increasingly anxious that the men wouldn't be coming home as daylight faded Thursday.




The cold temperatures making it unlikely someone could survive this long.

"At approximately 1:25 am my brother's fishing vessel, Queen Anne's Revenge, made a mayday call that they were taking in water", Oliveira said in a message posted on Facebook.

"The boat was positioning about 42 miles off the coast of Manasquan".

"We have a fixed wing aircraft from station Cape Cod, we have two 87 foot patrol boats the 47 foot motor life boat", says Hart.

Any mariners who discover any items related to the fishing vessel are being asked to contact Sector Delaware Bay watchstanders at 215-271-4940.
