NJ - Halt in search for fisherman

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS 7/27/08

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. - The Coast Guard has stopped searching for the owner and captain of a Rhode Island fishing boat that sank off the coast of New Jersey.

The Coast Guard sus­pended its search for 58­ year-old Philip Ruhle at sunset Friday after search­ing an area larger than the state of Delaware. A Coast Guard spokes­woman won't say if the suspension means that Ruhle is believed dead.

Two crew members were rescued after spending three hours in the water. The 80-foot Sea Breeze of Newport, R.I., was laden with 100,000 pounds of fish when it capsized and sank about 45 miles east of Atlantic City late Wednes­day.
