The 40-foot fishing boat Linda Claire was dredging for crabs when the accident happened six miles west of Cape May Point Thursday morning.

Good Samaritans aboard the vessels Katherine Brown and Sandra Lee rescued 27-year-old Chris Serra and 25-year-old Dave Wood.

However, there was no sign of 24-year-old Josh Catlett.

The Coast Guard and New Jersey State Police searched for Catlett on the water and in the air.

There’s no word what caused the vessel to capsize.
