PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Nathan Carman, who has been lost at sea for eight days has been recovered, reported the Boston Coast Guard.

The 22-year-old was found in good condition approximately 100 nautical miles south of Martha’s Vineyard. He was alone on a four person life raft, according to Petty Officer Nicole Groll.

Carman, who located by a freighter on Sunday afternoon, did not need medical attention.

Carman and his mother Linda Carman, 54, were last seen September 17, leaving Ram Point Marina in South Kingstown for a fishing trip on their boat, the Chicken Pox.

His mother’s whereabouts are unknown.

Linda, 54, is from Middletown, Connecticut, and her son Nathan Carman is from Vermont.

In a news release Friday, the Coast Guard announced they were suspending the search after six exhaustive days and no sign of 54-year-old Linda Carman, her 22-year-old son Nathan, or their boat.

The Coast Guard stated that Carman will return to the Boston area some time Tuesday morning.
