Coast Guard finds missing boaters off Honduras

MIAMI – Eight boaters missing off the coast of Honduras have been rescued.

U.S. Coast Guard spokesman Gabe Somma said the 28-foot boat was spotted about 66 miles from the western edge of Roatan, Honduras, where it set sail on Saturday afternoon.

Somma said the boaters – five Hondurans, a Canadian and two Americans – are all alive. But he doesn’t know their conditions.

All eight boaters had been hoisted into a U.S. Army helicopter Wednesday afternoon.

Somma said the search covered 2,740 square miles after a family member of the U.S. citizens reported the boat missing.

The multi-agency mission included the Coast Guard, the Honduran navy, and aircraft attached to the U.S. Southern Command in Honduras.
