BOSTON (AP) — The Coast Guard said it has confirmed the discovery of submerged wreckage of a Gloucester-based fishing vessel that disappeared in December.

The Coast Guard said the 45-foot Foxy Lady II was found Friday by its investigators and the Massachusetts Environmental Police in an area between Provincetown and Cape Ann after getting reports that fishing trawls were getting entangled. The wreckage was found in an area that was searched earlier.

The Foxy Lady and its two-man crew were reported missing Dec. 17. A few days later, a small, enclosed lifeboat from the boat was found in a marshy area north of Boston, and some fishing gear was found about 30 miles south in Hull.

Friends and family identified the fishermen on board as 26-year-old Wally Gray and 50-year-old Wayne Young of Deer Isle, Maine.
