MIRACLE: Sailor Missing For 2 Weeks Found Alive In Life Raft

  • A sailor who had been missing for nearly two weeks was discovered alive by a Good Samaritan off the coast of Washington State’s Cape Flattery, two days after the Coast Guard had ceased their search for him and another individual.
  • The pair had set sail from Washington’s Grays Harbor on October 12 aboard the vessel “Evening.” Their intended return date was October 15, as reported by the Pacific Northwest Coast Guard. After searching 14,000 square miles of water, the Coast Guard had suspended the search on Wednesday.
  • The unidentified man was located in a life raft approximately 70 miles northwest of Cape Flattery, as stated by the Coast Guard via social media on Thursday. Although the specifics of how the Good Samaritans located the man remain unclear, a photograph shared by the Coast Guard depicts their boat approaching the life raft, showing two individuals on the vessel’s edge and the missing man seated upright in the raft.
