Official search called off for missing fisherman
PROVINCETOWN - The official search for the missing skipper of the "Twin Lights" was called off by the Coast Guard late Monday night. Jean Frottier, 69, is missing and feared lost after the vessel's net apparenty snagged on something causing the boat to capsize and go under. The mate was rescued by a nearby lobster boat "Glutton" skippered by Beau Gribbon. The mate was not injured and was brought into Provincetown by the "Glutton" Sunday evening. Fellow fishermen were continuing to search off Race Point on Monday. The fishing community is a tight knit group who know all too well the perils of going to sea. Long faces were a common sight on MacMillan Wharf as the community comes to grip with this latest tragedy to befall the fleet. The exact cause of the incident remains under investigation.
