A freighter found a missing young man alive on an inflatable life raft on Sunday, eight days after he and his mother disappeared during a fishing trip off the coast of Rhode Island.
Nathan Carman, 22, was floating on a raft south of Martha’s Vineyard, but the location of his mother Linda Carman, 54, is still unknown. The U.S. Coast Guard undertook a massive search when the pair went missing after leaving a Rhode Island marina in a 31-foot aluminum fishing boat, the AP reports.
Nathan Carman is listed as being in good condition. He and Linda Carman fish together regularly, Linda Carman’s friend told the Courant.
