Sad news: The Coast Guard is reporting that one of the fishermen who have been missing since Sunday morning has been found dead.

According to press reports, family members who had been scouring the beaches off San Mateo County coast found the body of one of the men. The Medical Examiner's Office has not identified which of the two fishermen was found.

Authorities have still not located the second missing man.

Ping Tao Tsang, 46, and Carl Deng, 63 were among four boaters who were fishing near Pillar Point on Sunday when a huge wave knocked their 18-foot striper boat. The four men started swimming to shore when another wave crashed down on them. Only the two men wearing life jackets made it back to land.

  • 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.'"
