MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard says it has found four people who were stranded when their boat's battery died off the coast of Alabama.
An agency statement says the four left Orange Beach on Sunday morning to go fishing, but no one had heard from them hours later. It says they were reported missing that night and authorities found the boaters the next day.
A Coast Guard crew from Mobile found the vessel, and the Coast Guard towed the boat and its uninjured passengers to shore.
The Coast Guard identified the rescued boaters as Hunter Mccutcheon, Butch Mccutcheon, Cary Miller and Brent Baker. No other information about the four was immediately released.
