Coast Guard seeks missing American sailors in Mexico

(NewsNation) — The U.S. Coast Guard and the Mexican Navy are searching for three American sailors last heard from near Mazatlan, Mexico, on April 4.

According to the Coast Guard, Kerry O’Brien, Frank O’Brien, and William Gross were aboard a 44-foot La Fitte sailboat named Ocean Bound. They reportedly left Mazatlan en route to San Diego.

The sailors planned to stop in Cabo San Lucas on April 6 for provisions and to report in before continuing on to San Diego, the Coast Guard said in a release. However, there was no record of them arriving in Cabo San Lucas.

Search and rescue coordinators have contacted marinas throughout Baja, Mexico, with negative sightings of the vessel, the Coast Guard said.

“Urgent marine information broadcasts have been issued over VHF radio requesting all mariners to keep a lookout for the missing persons and vessel,” the U.S. Coast Guard said.

If anyone has any information on the whereabouts of Kerry O’Brien, Frank O’Brien, and William Gross or the sailing vessel Ocean Bound please contact the U.S. Coast Guard search and rescue coordination center at 510-437-3701.
