The U.S. Coast Guard called off a search late Monday for three missing fishermen who were lost after their commercial scalloping vessel capsized 24 nautical miles southwest of Martha’s Vineyard Sunday afternoon.

A rescue mission had been underway for about 24 hours for the F/V Leonardo, a 56-foot commercial scalloping vessel based out of New Bedford. One man, identified by the Coast Guard as Ernesto Santos, was saved.

The missing men were identified as Gerald Bretal, Xavier Vega and Mark Cormier Jr. No ages or other information was immediately available, C.G. petty officer Zachary Hupp said early Monday evening.

The search was called off at 4:40 p.m.

The Leonardo activated a distress signal at 3:18 p.m. Sunday indicating that the boat was taking on water, according to Ryan Noel, petty officer third class. Sea conditions were rough at the time, with nine-foot waves and 29-knot winds gusting up to 39 knots.

The Coast Guard responded with a Jayhawk helicopter out of Air Station Cape Cod, rescuing one fisherman, later identified as Mr. Santos, at 4:48 p.m.

Unable to locate the three other fishermen, the Coast Guard launched two search boats, the 87-foot Coast Guard cutter Cobia out of Woods Hole and the 270-foot cutter Escanaba out of Boston. The search continued through the night and throughout the day Monday, in clear weather.

None of the missing men were wearing survival suits or life jackets, the Coast Guard said.
