BAYONNE, N.J. (AP) — The Coast Guard is searching the waters for a crewman missing from a ship.

Coast Guard aircraft and a boat are conducting the search between Bayonne, New Jersey and Ocean City, Maryland.

The crew aboard the freighter Ibrahim Dede alerted the Coast Guard on Tuesday that the man was last reported on board the 600-foot ship after departing Bayonne.

The ship is bound for Norfolk, Virginia.
