A father and his two young children were rescued overnight after going missing at sea for more than half a day.
The Coast Guard said 38-year-old Mike Ryan and his two children, ages 5 and 6, were found safe in their boat sometime before 4 a.m. Monday off Scituate, Massachusetts. They disappeared at about 10 am. Sunday as they headed to Provincetown from Plymouth on a fishing trip, the Coast Guard said.
It was unclear how the family’s 20-foot Wellcraft ended up in waters off Scituate. The Coast Guard took them back to shore as crews from Point Allerton worked to tow their disabled boat.
