On Friday, July 1, we announced the story about the U.S. Coast Guard searching for a person in the water and believed to be somewhere between Nomans Island, which is south of Martha’s Vineyard, and New Bedford.

The missing person was on a fishing boat called the “Susan Rose” out of Point Judith, last seen around midnight Friday and heading back toward New Bedford. Those aboard noticed a 54-year-old fisherman was not on board around 1:30 a.m. It’s presumed that the person went overboard.

The F/V Susan Rose is a 77-foot Stern Trawler homeported in Point Judith, Rhode Island. The search covered approx. 1,065 sqr. nautical miles with a total of 53 asset hours.

The U.S. Coast Guard and local agencies have officially suspended the search pending further developments.
