The U.S. Coast Guard is searching for a 30-foot-sailboat that went missing while traveling from Cape May to Florida with two men aboard.
The sailboat, named "Atrevida II," was last seen Friday, Dec. 3 when it departed from Oregon Inlet, North Carolina with a final destination planned for Jupiter, Florida. The Coast Guard did not say when the sailboat left Cape May.
The men aboard the sailboat are Kevin Hyde, 64, and Joe DiTommasso, 76, the Coast Guard said.
The boat may have made a stop in Morehead City, North Carolina, but that has not been confirmed, officials said.
