    The U.S. Coast Guard on Monday resumed searching for two fishermen who were separated from a pair of fishing buddies Sunday and are now lost in the waters along the San Mateo County coast.

    Two of the men made it safely to shore, but two others, who were not wearing life jackets, still have not been found as of Monday morning. Coast guard officials said their 23-foot fishing boat capsized a mile of the coast on Sunday about 5:30 a.m. south of Half Moon Bay. A big wave hit the boat and caused it to capsized. The Coast Guard didn't get word about the missing fishermen until about six hours later.

    NBC Bay Area learned on Monday that one of the missing men is Carl Deng, according to his son, Randy Deng.

    The younger Deng was hopeful his father might somehow be on the coast because he said he found a chair from the boat and two jackets - belonging to his father and his friend - neatly folded on the shoreline.

    The other missing man is 46-year-old Ping Yau Tsang of San Francisco.

    "I hope my husband come back," a tearful Jindi Guan told NBC Bay Area on Sunday night regarding Tsang. "Because my daughter at home waiting for you."
