Search continues for missing Lubec man

PORTLAND, Maine- Multiple Coast Guard crews and local and state agencies continue to search today for Logan Preston, one of two people aboard the fishing vessel All American, which went down Wednesday in Cobscook Bay near Eastport, Maine.

Rescue crews will continue the search through the night, in hopes of finding the 19 year-old Lubec native.

The body of Loren W. Lank, also from Lubec, was recovered by the Maine Marine Patrol at 5:15 p.m., Wednesday, near a debris field about one mile east of Eastport, Maine, in Johnson Harbor.

The crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Moray located a life ring today inscribed with the vessel’s name on the beach near Cooper’s Island while a 25-foot boat crew from Coast Guard Station Eastport found additional debris near Razor Island.

Local agencies helping in the search include: Maine Marine Patrol boats and aircraft, Maine State Police dive teams with sidescan sonar, and the Washington County Sheriff’s Department. All agencies have helped search by air and sea, and along shorelines throughout the day.

Coast Guard units that have aided in the search include a 41-foot and 25-foot boat crew from Coast Guard Station Eastport, the Coast Guard Cutter Moray, and Jayhawk helicopter and Falcon jet crews from Coast Guard Air Station Cape Cod.

“We are confident we have a strong search plan and the Coast Guard is grateful to the numerous partner agencies that have assisted with this search from the beginning,” said Capt. James McPherson, commander of Coast Guard Sector Northern New England.
