F/V LINDA CLAIRE Sinks off New Jersey Shore - One Man Missing

According to the Coast Guard report, F/V LINDA CLAIRE capsized and sank early this morning in Delaware Bay, about six miles west of Cape May Point, while dredging for crab. Forty-foot LINDA CLAIRE was built in 1994 with a fiberglass hull.

The nearby Good Samaritan crews of F/V CAPTAIN BROWN and F/V SANDRA LEE were able to pull two of the fishermen out of the water, as a crewmember of CAPTAIN BROWN alerted the Coast Guard. These two fishermen , said to be Chris Serra, 27, and David Woods, 25, were then transferred for medical care. A search by air and sea is continuing for the third man, Josh Cattlet, 24, who remains missing.

Whether they were wearing flotation gear, as well as the medical conditions of the two rescued men, has not been released. The Coast Guard has begun an investigation into this tragedy.
