The search re­sumed yes­ter­day af­ter­noon for two men miss­ing af­ter a com­mer­cial West Coast fish­ing boat sank on Thurs­day af­ter it be­came en­tan­gled in a rope.

“An im­prove­ment in weather con­di­tions has al­lowed a he­li­copter to start an aerial search and ground search teams are car­ry­ing out a shore­line search,” po­lice said.

The Grey­mouth-based Wendy J sank af­ter strik­ing the rocky south West­land coast near Jack­son Bay on Thurs­day night.

The alarm was raised on Saturday morn­ing af­ter a light air­craft spot­ted wreck­age and a lif­er­aft on the shore.

A sur­vivor, Mark Thomas, was found near Teer Creek, about 10km south­west around the coast from Smooth­wa­ter Bay, where the boat sank. The bay is a small cove whose en­trance is marked by rocky out­crops.

He’s pretty up­set. He said they might have picked up a rope around the screw and it stalled the engine — a float­ing rope off a cray-pot or some­thing like that. John Brown, West­fleet Seafoods

Thomas was fish­ing on con­tract for Grey­mouth com­pany West­fleet Seafoods.

Gen­eral man­ager John Brown told the Her­ald yes­ter­day he had spo­ken to Thomas, who is aged in his early 20s.

“He’s pretty up­set. He said they might have picked up a rope around the screw and it stalled the engine — a float­ing rope off a cray-pot or some­thing like that.”

Brown said the Wendy J had gone to Smooth­wa­ter Bay to seek shel­ter.

Asked how Thomas man­aged to sur­vive, he said he was tough and had a very strong will.

Thomas was taken to Grey Base Hos­pi­tal in Grey­mouth and has now been dis­charged.

The po­lice said wreck­age from the boat was spread over a large area.

The search for the miss­ing men was sus­pended on Saturday night to wait for day­light but high seas and bad weather de­layed its re­sump­tion un­til 3pm yes­ter­day.

Ear­lier yes­ter­day, the po­lice said: “Search­ing has most re­cently been in the Smooth­wa­ter Bay area. Po­lice are in con­tact with the men’s fam­i­lies to keep them up­dated.”

The emer­gency op­er­a­tion was launched about 11.30am on Saturday af­ter a light plane fly­ing near Jack­son Bay, south­west of Haast, spot­ted some de­bris and a lif­er­aft on the shore­line.

A he­li­copter was sent and about three hours later spot­ted Thomas on a rock near Teer Creek.

One of the miss­ing men, Jay Cair­ney, was de­scribed by fam­ily as an ex­pe­ri­enced fish­er­man, and his rel­a­tives were pray­ing for his safe re­turn.
