Lifeboat of Missing Scalloper Found, No Sign of Crew
December 19, 2012
Gloucester Times: A rescue pod, marked Foxy Lady II on the side, was discovered in a Saugus [Massachusetts] marsh Tuesday evening shortly before 5:00, around the same time the U.S. Coast Guard was calling off the night’s search for the missing Gloucester-based scalloper and its crew of 2.
Emergency responders recovered the hard-shelled lifeboat, which Saugus police believe may be tied to the Foxy Lady II, after receiving a call from a resident about a vessel in a waterway of the Saugus River, according to Saugus Lt. Ronald Giorgetti.
