BOLO FOR M/V H.M.S. Me II in area of North Carolina

Glenn Tuttle

The U.S. Coast Guard Rescue Coordination Center (RCC) Norfolk, VA confirmed at 0700 hrs, 25 NOV 2019 the search for the 35' Bayliner cabin Cruiser named H.M.S. Me II.

The vessel with one POB, Michael Bye is overdue on a voyage from New York to Belle Haven, NC where he was supposed to pick up a friend on 21 NOV 2019 and never arrived. His last contact was on 19 NOV 2019 when he was 70 NM North of Norfolk, VA in the Ocean. His last cell phone ping was on Friday 22 NOV 2019 which put him in the vicinity of Duck, NC

Micheal Bye has a medical condition that prevents him from speaking. So even if he were to hear a VHF call for him, he would not be able to answer it.

The vessel is white in color with a dinghy on the stern.

USCG RCC Norfolk has provided photographs of the vessel which can be seen at or Facebook Group Boat Watch.

Anyone with information should contact USCG Norfolk at phone number 757-398-6231
