A life raft from The Foxy Lady II, which has been missing since Saturday, was found in Saugus Tuesday evening. The raft was found in the marsh off the end of Bristow Street. Also, a buoy from the boat was found on Nantasket Beach in Hull.
The 25-year-old captain and 50-year-old crewman who were aboard the Foxy Lady II remain missing.
The 45-foot vessel left Gloucester Saturday morning, and its last known location was 15 miles north of Provincetown.
The captain’s girlfriend notified the Coast Guard Monday morning that they had not returned as planned on Saturday. The Coast Guard says they have since covered more than 360 square miles in their search for the vessel. The search is ongoing.
