(LANAI, Hawaii) — A fisherman who was rescued last year after spending 12 days missing at sea vanished again when his fishing boat capsized off Hawaii.

The Coast Guard began searching for Ron Ingraham early Friday, hours after his fishing vessel ran aground near Lanai, Hawaii. The Coast Guard found his boat, named “Munchkin,” and Kenny Corder, who was also aboard, a few hours later.

Ingraham, 67, was not wearing a life jacket when the boat crashed into some rocks off the island, Corder told the Coast Guard. Corder was taken to a hospital in Maui and was reportedly in good condition.

Ingraham went missing Nov. 27 after placing two mayday calls saying his boat was in danger of sinking. He was found on Dec. 9.

“I thought I was going to die,” Ingraham told Coast Guard sailors after they found him. “You guys are heroes.”
