Lisbon: Rescuers were searching on Wednesday for five fishermen missing after their boat capsized in rough seas off Portugal`s Atlantic coast, rescue services said.

One of the six crew members was in stable condition in hospital after swimming from the wreck to a beach, fire service spokesman Luis Rector said. 

He said rescue services had not yet found the 11-metre (36-foot) fishing boat, which the survivor said had capsized near Macas beach in the Sintra area northwest of Lisbon.

A rescue helicopter, a Portuguese Navy ship and two other rescue boats were sent to search for the missing vessel, emergency services said.
