CAPE MAY, N.J. -- The U.S. Coast Guard said its boats and aircraft were still searching Wednesday for possible survivors from a fishing boat that sank off New Jersey.

Four members of the scallop boat's crew of seven remained unaccounted for in the cold waters southeast of Cape May.

The Philadelphia Enquirer said the fishermen were wearing survival suits, but the gear will not ward off the cold indefinitely.

The 71-foot Lady Mary foundered in rough seas early Tuesday. One survivor and two bodies were located.
