Captain of Tugboat STEVEN-SCOTT Missing - Presumed Overboard

According to reports, on April 25, at around 2:30 p.m., 91-foot tugboat STEVEN-SCOTT was about nine miles off Rhode Island towing a barge of 45,000 barrels of jet fuel when her crew noticed their captain, Brendan O'Leary, 48, of Marblehead, MA, had not been seen for the past hour. The crew contacted the Coast Guard, which responded immediately by boat, cutter, and helicopter. The seas at that time were 3-6 feet with up to 22-knot winds.

The Coast Guard searched over 775 square miles until 1:36 p.m. on April 26, when they suspended the search. What may have happened to Captain O'Leary is, as yet, unknown.
