A number of rescue agencies are involved in the search for the fisherman including ; divers from the Orange Beach Fire Department, the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office, the Fort Morgan Volunteer Fire Department, Bon Secour Volunteer Fire and Rescue as well as the U.S. Coast Guard.

Family members say the Coast Guard ended the search last night because of severe weather conditions.  The search resumed this morning.
