LOS ANGELES (AP) - The U.S. Coast Guard in Southern California
has joined the search for a San Francisco boater reported lost at
Sean Haggerty and his boat - a white sailing vessel with blue trim named Sea Hag - have been missing since April 1.
U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Kevin Neff said Sunday the 39-year-old boater had spoken with a friend via cell phone and reported the engine and GPS system on his 26-foot boat were not working.
Haggerty was supposed to sail from the San Francisco area south
along the coast, stopping at various ports and coastal islands, before arriving San Diego.
Neff says cell phone records indicate Haggerty last used his phone about 100 miles north of Los Angeles.
