LOS ANGELES (AP) - The Coast Guard has located a missing sailboat near Southern California’s Channel Islands and officials say all three people aboard are fine.

Petty Officer Sondra Kneen says the 35-foot vessel was found safe early Wednesday near Santa Cruz Island.

The search using a helicopter and a cutter began Tuesday night after a passenger’s wife reported said the boat didn’t return as planned.

Kneen says the boat’s operator, his wife and a male passenger were on board.
