Missing boat with 5 Americans found in Philippines

Rescuers say they have found five missing Americans aboard a sailboat that went missing en route from Guam to the Philippines.



Manila: Rescuers say they have found five missing Americans aboard a sailboat that went missing en route from Guam to the Philippines. All those aboard are in good health.

Philippine coast guard chief Adm. Wilfredo Tamayo says a search ship guided by a spotter plane located and boarded the 38-foot (11-meter) catamaran The Pineapple after it was spotted off the southern island of Dinagat. They are escorting the vessel to its original destination on central Cebu island.

The vessel was reported missing on its way to the Philippines after apparently developing engine trouble.

Tamayo says the four men and one woman on board are fine.

Relatives of the Americans alerted the US Coast Guard that The Pineapple left Guam on Jan. 6 but had not reached Cebu.
