Coast Guard searching off NJ for missing fisherman

MANASQUAN, N.J. (AP) — The Coast Guard is searching off the New Jersey shore for a commercial fisherman from Virginia who apparently fell overboard.

Thirty-year-old Renee Lopez of Newport News, Va., was reported missing from the fishing vessel Yvonne Michelle approximately 45 miles east of the Manasquan Inlet around 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Two Coast Guard helicopters and two boats combed the ocean without any sign of Lopez.

Thursday’s search will include a helicopter and a boat.
