Good Samaritan vessel rescues three missing men missing since last weekend

HOUSTON — The crew of a Good Samaritan vessel rescued three missing men 180 miles from Port Aransas at approximately 8:20 p.m., Saturday.

The three men had been missing since Aug. 22 and were reportedly found sitting on top of their capsized 23-foot vessel. The men are currently on board the vessel Affordable Fantasy and will later transfer to a Coast Guard Station Port Aransas 45-foot small boat. The Coast Guard will then transport the three men to Station Port Aransas where they will be met by EMS personnel.

Watchstanders at Sector Houston-Galveston initially received a call Aug. 22 from the Matagorda Police Department reporting the men overdue from a fishing trip. Coast Guard aircraft, cutter and small boat crews had searched approximately 86,000 square miles.
