BOSTON — The U.S. Coast Guard says one of two Connecticut boaters who had been missing for a week after leaving a Rhode Island marina was found alive, drifting on an inflatable life raft off the coast of Massachusetts.

The Coast Guard on Friday suspended its search for 54-year-old Linda Carman and her 22-year-old son, Nathan of Middletown, Connecticut.

The mother and son disappeared on Sept. 18 after leaving to go on a fishing trip in a 31-foot aluminum fishing boat named the Chicken Pox.

The Coast Guard in Boston says Nathan Carman was found by a freighter on Sunday about 100 nautical miles south of Martha’s Vineyard.

He was listed in good condition. Linda Carman’s whereabouts remain unknown.
