The U.S. Coast Guard on Tuesday was searching for two men whose return from a sailing trip to Catalina Island was overdue.

Albert Bosco and Kirk Williams have been missing since late Monday afternoon. The pair departed from Dana Point aboard a 26-foot sailboat bound for Catalina Island, according to a statement from the Coast Guard.

Bosco contacted his family and informed them to call the Coast Guard if they failed to return by 5 p.m. Monday, according to officials. Family members told authorities they last heard from the pair when they were within 9 miles of the island.

Further details were unavailable. Anyone with information of the two missing men should call 911 or the nearest Coast Guard station.
