Coast Guard Continues Search for Missing Boaters

Posted: Updated:

PORTSMOUTH, Va.- The Coast Guard is continuing its search for two overdue boaters who departed Ocean City, Md., on Saturday morning and did not arrive in Chincoteague, Va., that evening as expected.

According to the Coast Guard, brothers Mike Bramlett, 51, and Donald Bramlett, 54, both of Texas, were aboard a 38-foot sport fishing boat called "Reel Fun." A Coast Guard spokesman said the men purchased the boat in New Jersey and were taking it down to Florida.  

The Coast Guard said Mike Bramlett's wife reported the two men as missing at approximately 8:30 a.m. Sunday.

The Coast Guard is currently conducting a search with a C-130 aircraft out of the Coast Guard Air Station Elizabeth City, N.C. There is also a search being conducted out of Station Cape May in New Jersey. The Coast Guard said it is also looking from Cape May all the way down to the Virginia/North Carolina border.

Anyone with information regarding the missing boaters is asked to contact the Coast Guard Command Center at (757) 483-8567.
