The U.S. Coast Guard says one of two Connecticut boaters missing for a week has been found alive, drifting on an inflatable life raft off the coast of Massachusetts.
The Coast Guard on Friday suspended its search for 54-year-old Linda Carman and her 22-year-old son, Nathan, of Middletown.
The mother and son disappeared Sept. 18 after leaving a Rhode Island marina to go on a fishing trip in a 31-foot aluminum fishing boat named the Chicken Pox.
The Coast Guard in Boston says Nathan Carman was found Sunday by a freighter about 100 nautical miles south of Martha’s Vineyard.
He was listed in good condition. Linda Carman’s whereabouts remain unknown.
Petty Officer 3rd Class Nicole Groll says the freighter is scheduled to reach land Tuesday.
