Coast Guard searching for 2 missing Bahamians

MIAMI – Coast Guard crews are searching for two of four Bahamian men missing from a capsized vessel about five miles southwest of Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands, Sunday.

Royal Bahamian Defense Force officials requested search assistance after Ivan Mowlley made it to shore at Oceans Beach Sunday and reported the three other men he had been fishing with Saturday were still adrift.

An HH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Clearwater, Fla., deployed to Providenciales in support of Operation Bahamas Turks and Caicos began searching and located one of the three men missing.

Also assisting with the search is a HU-25 Falcon jet crew from Air Station Miami and an RBDF vessel.
