Brevard County, Florida
Classification Lost/Injured Missing
Date of Birth Used 06/17/1975 (45)

Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian male. Brown hair, brown eyes. James's nickname is Jamie, which is sometimes misspelled "Jaime."
The boat never returned to shore. The body of the captain was found about twelve miles off Daytona Beach, Florida on December 26. James's body washed ashore in January; a photo of him is posted with this case summary. Doherty and Jamie were never located and neither was any sign of the boat, in spite of an extensive search.
Authorities aren't sure how the boat apparently ran into trouble, as DeGoes was an experienced captain who frequently led fishing trips, and water conditions were not bad on the day they all went missing. The boat had a radio, but never sent out any distress signals. Both Jamie and Doherty are presumed lost at sea.
