The U.S. Coast Guard is asking for the public’s help in determining the whereabouts of a missing sailboat with a two-person crew that disappeared while traveling from New Jersey to Florida.
The 30-foot Catalina sailboat, known as the “Atrevida II,” never reached its intended destination in Marathon, Florida, after setting sail from Cape May, New Jersey, WTXF-TV reported.
The Coast Guard says the Atrevida II was carrying Kevin Hyde, 64, and Joe DiTommasso, 76, when it left Cape May.
The boat was last seen on Dec. 3 when it departed the Oregon Inlet in North Carolina’s Outer Banks on its way to Florida.
“Atrevida II may have stopped in Morehead City, NC, but this is not confirmed,” the U.S. Coast Guard Mid-Atlantic wrote on Facebook.
“If you or someone you know has any information regarding the missing boater, call the Coast Guard Atlantic Area Command Center at 757-398-6700,” the Facebook post said.
The sailboat is registered in New Jersey with the tag 7033HN and has a bluish-purple hull along with a white superstructure and white sails.
Hundreds of people responded with comments on the Facebook post offering prayers and suggesting possible snags the two boaters could have encountered.
The U.S. Coast Guard did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News Digital.
