Son missing for a week found alive on raft; mother still missing

One of two Connecticut people who had been missing for a week following a fishing trip has been found alive, drifting on an inflatable life raft off the coast of Massachusetts.

The US Coast Guard had suspended its search for 54-year-old Linda Carman and her 22-year-old son, Nathan, of Middletown, on Friday.

The mother and son disappeared on September 18 after leaving a Rhode Island marina to go on a fishing trip in a 31ft fishing boat named the Chicken Pox.

The Coast Guard in Boston said Nathan Carman was found by a freighter about 100 nautical miles south of Martha's Vineyard.

He was said to be in good condition. Linda Carman's whereabouts remain unknown.
