The 50-foot vessel sank early Friday morning about 115 miles southeast of Galveston, not far from the Texas-Louisiana border. The boat called the Nite Owl is owned by a Louisiana seafood company.

There were five men onboard. One of them, John Reynolds, was rescued Friday.

Reynolds told the Houston Chronicle that the impact of a rogue wave threw the crewmen into the water, where they struggled to hold onto debris.

The Coast Guard has already searched a 2,000-square-mile area for the missing fishermen.
