The Coast Guard has recovered an emergency signaling device that belongs to a fishing boat missing for weeks off the North Carolina coast.
Another fishing vessel found the device yesterday 23 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras. A sea and air search turned up no other evidence of the boat.
The Coast Guard said today that the boat registration number on the signal unit shows it belongs to the missing boat. The device wasn't activated.
Missing is the 30-foot, blue fishing trawler named "Assassin."
Joey Shields and Erik Burgess, both 32, left Wanchese on April 16 for a two-week fishing trip on the trawler. It was last seen April 24 near Morehead City heading south.
