Missing Boater Found Safe

Posted: Updated:
A missing Dana Point man and a 35-foot yacht he was skippering just outside Dana Harbor were found safe by authorities Sunday.

Daniel Formica, 45, had sailed from the San Diego Yacht Club on Thursday but failed to dock at his Orange County homeport later that night, a U.S. Coast Guard official said.

Another man, who owns the 35-foot sailing vessel Abba Jaba Dad, reported the boat and his friend were missing at about 4 p.m. Saturday, said Coast Guard public affairs officer Jetta Disco.

Port police along the coast were searching local marinas to see if the large sailboat had docked elsewhere, and Formica and the yacht were found around 12:20 p.m. today by the Dana Point Harbor Patrol just outside the harbor, Disco said.
