The U.S. Coast Guard and other agencies announced Saturday night that they were suspending a daylong search for a crewman who went missing from a 100-foot commercial fishing boat off Sunset and Seal beaches.
“Coast Guard suspends search for reported missing crew member from fishing vessel Sea Queen II near Sunset and Seal Beach after searching more than 43 square miles with nine surface and two air assets from local partners and #USCG,’' the Coast Guard tweeted at 7:58 p.m.
