Man Missing at Sea 66 days ago Found by Coast Guard


PORTSMOUTH, Va. (AP) - The U.S. Coast Guard says a South Carolina man whose family reported him missing at sea more than two months ago has been rescued off the North Carolina coast.

In a statement, Coast Guard officials in Portsmouth said they received word from a German-flagged ship about 1:30 p.m. Thursday indicating they spotted a man and his sailboat approximately 200 miles east of Cape Hatteras.

A Coast Guard helicopter crew from North Carolina was headed to meet the ship and take the man to a hospital in Norfolk, Virginia.

Authorities identified the man as 37-year-old Louis Jordan, who was aboard the sailboat Angel. His family says he sailed out of a marina in Conway, South Carolina, on Jan. 23, and hadn't been heard from since.
