Woonsocket Call - - Region/Obituaries -

NANTUCKET, Mass. (AP) — Mas­sachusetts State Po­lice say divers have lo­cated an ob­ject they be­lieve to be the fish­ing boat that sank off Nantucket, leav­ing four peo­ple in dis­tress.

The Coast Guard re­ceived a dis­tress call from the 69-foot Misty Blue around 6 p.m. Mon­day. An­earby fish­ing boat res­cued two of the four crewmem­bers — the cap­tain and a crew­man — and brought them to a Coast Guard ves­sel, but two re­mained miss­ing Tues­day.

State po­lice say divers lo­cated a large ob­ject be­lieved to be the ves­sel on Tues­day. Weather and ocean con­di­tions pre­vented them from in­ves­ti­gat­ing fur­ther. Divers plan to re­turn on Thurs­day.

At­lantic Cape Fish­eries, the ship owner, iden­ti­fied the two miss­ing crewmem­bers as 44-year-old Michael Roberts and 32-year-old Jonathan Saraiva.

Author­i­ties say the two res­cued crewmem­bers were in good con­di­tion.
