One of two boaters from Middletown, Connecticut, missing for a week was found alive at sea on a life raft, but his mother is still missing.
Nathan Carman, 22, and his mother, 54-year-old Linda Carman, were reported missing Sept. 18 after they failed to return from a fishing trip off Point Judith, Rhode Island.
On Sunday, a freighter spotted a life raft 115 nautical miles off Martha's Vineyard and found Nathan Carman inside of it, according to the U.S. Coast Guard. He had an emergency bag of food and water, but there was still no sign of Linda Carman.
The Coast Guard had been searched an area near Block Island and the search expanded through 62,000 square miles, from the coast of Rhode Island to New York and as far as New Jersey.

"I have no respect for Colin Kaepernick, he probably has no respect for me," the Hall of Fame coach continued. "That’s his choice. My choice is that I like this country. I respect our flag."

Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts lifted a citywide curfew Sunday evening after a weekend of peaceful protests and demonstrations over the police-involved shooting death of Keith Lamont Scott, NBC News reports.
In a statement, Roberts and the chairman of the Mecklenburg Board of County Commissioners urged the community to continue to "show their unity in a peaceful and legal manner."
Violent protests rocked the city last week after a police officer shot and killed Scott on Tuesday. North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory declared a state of emergency, calling in the National Guard.
As the week drew on, the demonstrations continued, but protesters remained peaceful. Many called for the police to release the dashcam and bodycam footage taken during the shooting, and the department released some of that footage to the public Saturday.
