Missing Fishermen Found Off South Jersey Coast

The three men who set out from Tuckerton on an overnight fishing excursion are found safe and sound, and where they said they’d be, following a morning search by the U.S. Coast Guard in what was apparently a case of miscommunication.

Petty Officer Nicholas Ameen says that Trevor Daniels and his buddies were stunned to see a USCG helicopter patrolling the skies as far as the 60 miles offshore that they planned to travel.

They left Tuckerton in a white 28-footer about 10:30 PM Monday, according to information supplied by the Guard.

Daniels’s father called the Delaware Bay sector when the trio failed to return around 6:00 this morning. Problem was, says Ameen, that they planned to return at about 6:00 PM, not AM.

A chopper crew from the Atlantic City station found the fishermen a short while after lifting off this morning. It’s still not known whether they filed a float plan beforehand or maintained radio contact during the voyage – two safeguards that the Coast Guard recommends strongly for anyone taking to the open waters.
