The U.S. Coast Guard and state police suspended an 80 square-mile search late last night for a fisherman after he'd been missing in 3-foot seas and water temperatures of 49 degrees for nearly 12 hours.
The search for the yet-unidentified crewman feared lost aboard the 42-commercial scallop vessel Twin Lights was called off at 10:42 p.m. The boat capsized about 11:30 a.m. yesterday after it became entangled in fishing gear and sank shortly afterward 2 miles north of Provincetown.
The crew aboard the lobster boat Glutton were able to save a second fisherman who was on deck. The other man was in the pilot house steering the Twin Lights when she rolled over, the Coast Guard said.
