Weather halts search

A MAJOR land and sea search for a missing fisherman had to be called off for a second day because of deteriorating weather conditions.

Robert McLaughlin (Jackie) (41), of Ross Head, Glengad, Co Donegal, is missing, feared drowned, after the fishing vessel he was on capsized off the north Inishowen coast on Monday morning.

The body of his uncle, and skipper, Eddie Doherty (Lisa) (65) was recovered from the sea close to Glengad Head yesterday morning.

The search is expected to resume at first light this morning.
