Coast Guard: Missing boaters located near Bahamas

Coast Guard officials in South Florida say three boaters reported missing on a trip from Lake Worth to the Bahamas have been located.

Authorities say the crew aboard the Flying Pig heard a marine broadcast Tuesday that asked other boaters to be on the lookout for their vessel. The crew radioed officials and said they were anchored near Abaco Island, Bahama.

A friend of the boat's owner called emergency officials when he stopped receiving satellite location messages from the Flying Pig. The vessel's last message placed the Flying Pig about 20 miles north of Grand Bahama Island.

The boat's owner, Skip Gundlach, left Lake Worth with his two passengers on Sunday. They were headed to Spanish Cay, Bahamas.
