Second Body Found In Search For Sailboat Family
The U.S. Coast Guard says a second body has been recovered as crews continue to search the Gulf of Mexico for a family missing off the coast of southwest Florida.
A Coast Guard news release says Cape Coral Fire and Rescue found the body Thursday morning, about four miles from where the first body was found Wednesday. Authorities have not released the identity of either one.
Searchers have also found debris from the boat. On Thursday they found a sailboat mast.
Crews have been searching for 45-year-old Ace Kimberly and his three teenage children.
The family left Sarasota on Sunday, heading to Fort Myers in a 29-foot sailboat. They were last heard from Sunday evening when Kimberly contacted his brother and said they were experiencing "6-foot waves and thunderstorms."
