Container ship finds missing Florida boater

A 62-year-old boater who had been missing since Friday was found Sunday clinging to his capsized vessel off of Florida’s Atlantic coastline, the U.S. Coast Guard said,

The agency had been searching for signs of Stuart Bee and his 32-foot (9.7 meters) boat since he was reported missing on Friday.

A crew onboard the container ship Angeles spotted Bee some 86 miles (138 kilometers) off of Cape Canaveral on Sunday, the Coast Guard said in a Twitter post.

A Coast Guard helicopter crew flew to the Angeles to take Bee back to shore.

His condition wasn’t immediately known.

The Coast Guard had to dispatch an air crew to assist in the rescue.
