Sandy: Search For Bounty Captain Continues
The search for the captain of a tall ship that sank during Hurricane Sandy is to continue for a second night, US coast guards have said.
Lt Mike Patterson said a C-130 plane and two cutter ships will be used to look for HMS Bounty captain Robin Walbridge.
Searchers hope the 63-year-old, from St Petersburg, Florida, has been able to survive in the relatively mild 25C (77F) waters of the Atlantic, about 90 miles (145km) off Cape Hatteras.
Lt Patterson said search planes could no longer see the Bounty, an 18th-century replica tall ship used in many movie dramas.
The ship's masts had remained visible for hours after the decks disappeared below the waves early on Monday.
A 42-year-old woman was rescued from the sea soon after the Bounty went down.
Claudene Christian, who lived and sailed on the vessel, was taken to hospital in a critical condition and died later.
