Search resumes for captain of HMS Bounty
Rescuers Tuesday searched for a missing crewmember of the tall ship HMS Bounty, which sank off the coast of North Carolina, officials said.
The 52-year-old reproduction used in several movies was headed for safe waters in Florida when it ran smack into Hurricane Sandy Monday, the Richmond (Va.) Times-Dispatch reported.
Crewmembers abandoned the sinking ship and 14 were rescued by Coast Guard swimmers and helicopters within hours.
A 15th crewmember, Claudene Christian, 42, was recovered Monday afternoon but was unresponsive when taken to a hospital, the Coast Guard said.
Captain Robin Walbridge, 63, of Florida is still missing.
