Search for HMS Bounty Captain Suspended

Coast Guard officials suspended their search on Thursday for the missing captain of the abandoned and sunken HMS Bounty, and announced Friday that the branch will be formally investigating the incident.

One crew member – 42-year-old Claudene Christian – died earlier this week after being recovered, and Capt. Robin Walbridge's disappearance upped the number of crew members not accounted for alive to two, after 14 others were rescued and brought to safety by Coast Guard officials on Monday morning.
