U.S. Coast Guard crews are searching for a fishing vessel reported missing in heavy surf this afternoon off the San Mateo County coast, a Coast Guard spokeswoman said.
The vessel Good Guys and its crew of two people was reported missing at about 1 p.m. off Pillar Point, north of Half Moon Bay, according to U.S. Coast Guard Lt. Anya Hunter.
The Coast Guard dispatched two helicopters and two 47-foot motor lifeboats to conduct a search, according to Hunter. The Coast Guard is coordinating the search with the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office and the
Pillar Point harbormaster.
A small craft and surf advisory has been in effect today, and waves have been reported in excess of 20 feet, according to Hunter.
