2 adults, 2 children missing off N. Calif. coast
MONTEREY, Calif. (AP) — The Coast Guard was searching with vessels and aircraft Monday for four family members, including two children under 8, who reported that they were forced to abandon their sailboat because it was sinking south of San Francisco.
The group was approximately 65 miles off Monterey around 4:20 p.m. Sunday when they made a distress call, Coast Guard Lt. Heather Lampert said. Their location initially was reported farther north, but Lampert said investigators using the boat's radio signal and radar now believe the call came in west of Monterey Bay, which is about 100 miles south of San Francisco. The boat did not have a working GPS system.
The boaters said their 29-foot sailboat was taking on water and their electronics were failing.
