Coast Guard Cutter Leaves Wilmington

WILMINGTON -- The U.S. Coast Guard Cutter Diligence said a quick farewall to the Port City Saturday morning.

WECT's Battleship camera caught the Diligence heading down the Cape Fear River. The cutter is leaving port for several months as part of its regular patrol.

In the past several months out at sea, the Diligence had seized illegal drugs and performed searches and rescues.
