CLEVELAND — The U.S. Coast Guard, Cleveland Police Department, Lakewood Fire Department and Ohio Department of Natural Resources are searching for two overdue fishermen on a 22-foot white Starcraft with green trim who did not return to Edgewater marina in Cleveland Monday evening.

The Coast Guard received a call at approximately 9:30 p.m. from the daughter of one of the missing fishermen who reported that the fishermen’s vehicle was still parked at Edgewater marina and that calls to their cell phones went straight to voicemail.

The Coast Guard launched a 45-Foot Response Boat-Medium crew from Coast Guard Station Cleveland Harbor, which was joined by a Canadian Coast Guard C-130 fixed wing aircraft crew and Canadian Coast Guard CH-146 Griffon helicopter crew from Trenton, Ontario. An MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Detroit was also launched to assist in the search.
