DAUPHIN ISLAND, Ala. - The Coast Guard is searching for a missing fisherman 70 miles south of Dauphin Island, Alabama, Monday.

Missing is Carlos Ramirez Regaldo, 33, a fisherman with the fishing vessel Scatterbrain. He was last seen wearing a grey shirt and blue pants without a life jacket.

Watchstanders with Coast Guard Sector Mobile received a report from crewmembers of the Scatterbrain that Regaldo fell overboard from the vessel at 7:30 p.m., Sunday. The boat is registered in Brownsville, Texas.

The watchstanders directed the launch of a Coast Guard Air Station New Orleans, MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew, a Coast Guard Aviation Training Center Mobile, HC-144 Ocean Sentry aircrew and the crew of the Coast Guard Cutter Cobia to search for Regaldo.

There was a 52' Hatteras, named 'Scatterbrain' (Specialized in billfishing) that was home ported in Brownsville, TX that fished from Costa Rica down to Panama a few years back. Had a anglo captain but a hispanic crew.

Wonder if the same boat and what the hell they are doing at Daulphin Island other than traveling and taking fuel?

This is suppose to be out of Texas from what I understand. Another case of not having safety equipment on. Kinda makes you think twice about it when you hear these stories!
