Good Samaritans aboard two other vessels rescued 27-year-old Chris Serra and 25-year-old David Woods Thursday morning from the water approximately six miles west of Cape May Point.

The Coast Guard says 24-year-old Josh Cattlet is missing.

The Coast Guard says the men were dredging for crabs aboard the 40-foot fishing boat Linda Claire when it capsized and sank.

The rescued men were transferred from the fishing vessels Captain Brown and Sandra Lee and taken to Coast Guard Station Cape May. Their conditions are not known.

The Coast Guard and New Jersey State Police are searching the area on the water and in the air.
