HONOLULU (AP) — The Coast Guard says it's continuing to look for a Hawaii fisherman who went missing just a few months after surviving 12 days at sea.

A patrol boat based in Hilo, a medium response boat from Maui and a helicopter crew from Oahu were searching for Ron Ingraham on Saturday.

The Coast Guard rescued Ingraham's shipmate Kenny Corder a few hours after receiving a mayday call from their vessel early Friday.

Corder says Ingraham wasn't wearing a life jacket when their boat capsized about 1 mile west of Lanai.

Ingraham was rescued in December after putting out a mayday call on Thanksgiving saying he was in danger of sinking. He had been trying to sail from Molokai island, where he lives, to Lanai island, where he often goes fishing.
