Family continues search for missing fisherman

- Although the U.S. Coast Guard has suspended its search of 59-year-old Ba Van Nguyen, his relatives say they need closure and will continue their search efforts. Nguyen was reported missing on Friday night when a Good Samaritan found his 5- foot shrimp boat moving around in circles near Eagle Point. His car was found at the 21st Street dock where he had launched the boat early on Friday morning.

Nguyen's family has set up a GoFundMe page and in one day, it was able to raise more than $3,200. The Nguyen Family is seeking volunteers with boats or on land to scan area beaches. The missing man's daughter Judy tells FOX 26 News,"We're running out of time and it's become very stressful and frustrating my family just really want some closure we want to bring them home especially for my mom."
