The U.S. Coast Guard has called off its search for four fishermen who went missing off the Texas Gulf Coast after their boat sank Friday about 115 miles southeast of Galveston.

The effort was suspended after rescue crews searched a 5400-square-mile area with planes, helicopters and boats.

There were five men onboard the 50-foot vessel. One was rescued Friday.
