Guam - Guam Fire Department rescue units were called to a report of fishermen who were swept over the reef in Asan on Sunday.

GFD spokesperson Lieutenant Ed Artero says the report came in just before 3:30 on Sunday. GFD's Search & Rescue team responded and received assistance from the U.S. Coast Guard and the Navy's HSC-25 Helicopter Squadron.

Artero says the fishermen were accounted for but due to conflicting reports rescue units conducted additional searches both underwater and on the surface, which produced negative findings.
