Search Launched for Missing Boaters En Route to Monterey

Pair set sail from Catalina Island

The Coast Guard is searching for a pair of missing boaters who had set sail from Santa Catalina Island to the Monterey Bay.

Coast Guard Petty Officer Cory Mendenhall says Monday that 21-year-old Zebulon Tryon and Chris Reuter, about 25, departed from the island's Avalon Harbor on Friday in a white, 27-foot Coronado Sailing vessel bound for Santa Cruz Harbor.

Tryon's family told authorities Sunday that they had lost contact with the men.

The Coast Guard says an HC-130 plane from its Sacramento Air Station will search the coast after dawn Monday.
