Arrest Ordered In Salvaging Case

Nov 8, 2012

A federal judge has ordered the arrest of a second fugitive in a shipwreck salvaging case.

45-year-old Alison Antekeier failed to appear for a hearing in Columbus in a federal lawsuit against shipwreck salvager Tommy Thompson. Authorities have been searching for Thompson since August. More than two decades ago, Thompson and his crew located and retrieved millions of dollars in gold bars and coins from a ship that sank off the North Carolina coast. A lawsuit filed by seamen claims they're entitled to some of the treasure.
