SUFFIELD, Conn. (AP) — Family members of a U.S. sailor from Connecticut say they believe he is among 10 sailors who are missing since a U.S. warship collided with an oil tanker in Southeast Asia.
The family of Electronics Technician 3rd Class Petty Officer Dustin Doyon, of Suffield, released a statement on Tuesday.
Family members say they're still awaiting word from the Navy, and that they "appreciate the courageous work of the crew" following the collision and the ongoing rescue efforts.
