The Coast Guard was frantically searching the waters off Florida’s Gulf Coast early Wednesday in a desperate search for a missing sailboat occupying a father and his three teenage children who were “attempting to survive” in rough seas, and who had not been heard from since Sunday.

The U.S. Coast Guard launched a HC-130 Hercules airplane from Clearwater Beach, and several other vessels from Stations Cortez and Fort Myers, Petty Officer 2nd Class Ashley J. Johnson told the News-Press. The Maritime Emergency Response Team had also been activated.

The family, which the Coast Guard said lived on the 29-foot boat, was last heard from Sunday when the father called his his brother. They were being buffeted by six-foot waves off the shore of Englewood and were “attempting to survive,” the Coast Guard said in a statement.
