UPDATE, Dec. 13: Hyde, DiTommasso, and a dog named Minnie were found off the coast of New York State by a tanker that saw them waving a flag, ABC 7 Eyewitness News reported.

CAPE MAY — A pair of sailors and their vessel are overdue and the Coast Guard is reaching out to the public for help to find them.

The 30-foot Catalina sailboat named the Atrevida II left Cape May on Nov. 28 with its destination set as Marathon, Florida, Cmdr. Daniel Schrader told New Jersey 101.5.

However, the boat has not yet arrived at a stop in between. Schrader said it was not known if there was a specific planned date to arrive at its next stop.

The Atrevida II's crew, Kevin Hyde, 64, and Joe DiTommasso, 76, are considered missing.

The Coast Guard says that the Atrevida II was last seen on Dec. 3 leaving Oregon Inlet, North Carolina. It was supposed to make its next stop at Jupiter, Fla. before arriving at its final destination in the Florida Keys.

It's possible the vessel was spotted stopping at Morehead City, NC but this has not been confirmed, according to the Coast Guard.

The boat is described as having a bluish-purple hull, white superstructure, and white sails. Its registration is NJ 7033HN.

Anyone with information on the sailors or their vessel is asked to contact the Coast Guard Atlantic Area Command Center at 757-398-6700.
