Coast Guard Resumes Search for Missing Fishermen

Posted By on Mon, Oct 1, 2012 at 7:25 AM


Authorities are still scouring the waters this morning for two fisherman who went missing after their boat capsized yesterday off the coast of San Mateo County, where swells reached seven feet.

According to press reports, an 18-foot striper boat was knocked over at about 10:30 a.m. near Pigeon Point; two others on the boat swam to the shore and alerted police, who started an immediate search for the two missing men.

The Coast Guard planes circled the waters until 11:30 p.m. on Sunday, when they suspended the search until daylight. 

Authorities have not yet released the names of the missing fisherman, but confirmed the two men were not wearing life jackets.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
