HONOLULU (AP) - The U.S. Coast Guard and Navy continue to search a remote area in the middle of the Pacific Ocean for a British man who was reported overboard from a troubled sailboat.
United Kingdom officials reported to the U.S. Coast Guard in Hawaii on Saturday night that one man from the 38-foot vessel fell overboard. Coast Guard Petty Officer Eric Chandler says a woman remained aboard and was later rescued. The Navy diverted warship USS Peleliu to help search.
The search continues Monday, with Navy helicopters and Coast Guard planes taking turns and resting on Midway Atoll.
Meanwhile, the sailboat is on its own on the ocean because the warship has no way to secure it. Navy crewmembers put a tracking device on the sailboat and turned on its navigation lights.
