Coast Guard: Missing sailor found safe

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - A sailor making a Maine-to-Florida solo trip who was reported missing by his sister when he had not been heard from in several days has been found safe.

A U.S. Coast Guard spokesman says 61-year-old Stephen Crane was spotted by an aircraft on Friday morning about 70 miles off Long Island, N.Y.
 
Adam Stanton says Crane is "not in any sort of distress" and was just traveling slower than expected.
 
Crane last reported his position as he rounded Cape Cod, Mass., on Sunday. His sister notified the Coast Guard after the 31-foot sailboat Austina did not arrive in Cape Hatteras, N.C., as expected Thursday afternoon.
 
Crane departed Portland, Maine, on Aug. 1 and was headed to Florida.
 
Stanton did not know where Crane is from.
