Sailboat Found Near Port Aransas

PORT ARANSAS - The Coast Guard has located two men reported overdue while sailing from Port Aransas to Galveston. Both are okay.

The men didn't want to abandon their boat so the Coast Guard was helping them limp back to shore. However, they changed their minds and left the boat out near the jetties.

A towing/salvage company will now need to take care of it.

Patrick Holden and Joe Squibb left Saturday in a 25-foot sailboat. Holden's wife called the Coast Guard when she didn't hear from her husband.
