Vessel Possibly Belonging to Missing Man Found

64-year-old San Ramon man missing since Wednesday.

U.S. Coast Guard crews this morning found a vessel possibly associated with a after leaving from Pillar Point Harbor on Wednesday but have yet to find the missing man.

The Coast Guard received a call on Thursday night from the son of Shau Tsu Wong, a 64-year-old San Ramon man who departed from the harbor near Half Moon Bay on a recreational trip on Wednesday, Petty Officer Pamela Boehland said.

The son said that his father did not usually take night trips on his boat, a white 18-foot vessel with a red stripe on it and two outboard engines, Boehland said.

A capsized boat was found this morning off of Pillar Point but Coast Guard officials are still waiting to confirm that it is the vessel belonging to Wong.

The Coast Guard had initially launched a helicopter from its San Francisco station shortly before midnight but did not find the boat or Wong. The helicopter crew returned to the station and then launched again at sunrise today, according to Boehland.

Two boats from the Coast Guard, an 87-foot patrol boat and a lifeboat, have also participated in the search, Boehland said.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Wong is asked to call the Coast Guard at (415) 399-3530.
