BOSTON — The Coast Guard has suspended its search for a 31-year-old Maine man who apparently fell overboard from a fishing boat off Cape Cod.
Coast Guard Petty Officer Lauren Jorgensen said the agency suspended its search for Chris Hopkins of Bass Harbor at about 1:30 p.m. Saturday.
The crew of the 63-foot stern trawler Bella Rose called for help Friday afternoon when they realized Hopkins was missing.
Fishing boats joined Coast Guard boats and a helicopter crew in its search Friday in an area about 125 miles east of Truro.
A Coast Guard jet went out early Saturday and a New Jersey-based cutter looked through the day until the search was suspended.
