The U.S. Coast Guard and Mexican Navy are searching for three American sailors who have been missing for almost two weeks. 

"Three persons aboard the sailing vessel Ocean Bound, a 44-foot La Fitte, reportedly left Mazatlán en route to San Diego," the Coast Guard said Friday. "The sailors planned to stop in Cabo San Lucas on April 6 for provisions and to report in before continuing on to San Diego."

"However, there was no record of them arriving in Cabo San Lucas or a report of their location," the statement added

Kerry O’Brien, Frank O’Brien and William Gross set sail on their vessel Ocean Bound, last making contact with anyone on April 4 when they were near Mazatlán, Mexico, the Coast Guard said.
