The Coast Guard has suspended its search for the two fishermen who disappeared on Monday when their boat, Misty Blue, sunk almost 10 miles off of the Nantucket coast.
Atlantic Cape Fisheries, the ship owner, identified the two missing crewmembers as 44-year-old Michael Roberts and 32-year-old Jonathan Saraiva.
Another fishing boat was able to save two crew members and the two other fishermen have not been seen since.
The Misty Blue, a 69-foot vessel out of New Bedford, Massachusetts, issued a distress call shortly after 6 p.m. Monday, according to the Coast Guard.
The Misty Blue is normally tied up in Fairhaven.

Joining the Coast Guard in the search are the Barnstable County Sheriff and the Dennis Fire Department. Several aircraft vehicles and patrol boats were deployed.
The Coast Guard suspended its search Tuesday night for two missing crewmembers of a fishing boat that sank near Nantucket.
