Three missing boaters were found safe off the Massachusetts coast early Monday after a 39-year-old man and his two children failed to return home from a trip after setting out from Plymouth.
The U.S. Coast Guard said the family was located off Scituate in their 20-foot Wellcraft boat with "no injuries," around 3:30 a.m. after they were spotted by a helicopter. A search was launched for Mike Ryan and his children, ages 5 and 6, after they left the Plymouth boat ramp Sunday morning and failed to return home.
