Five men were found safe Saturday, after being after being stranded at sea in a 14-foot skiff since Wednesday, July 8, 2015.
The men were rescued by the crew of the motor vessel, after a Hercules air crew from Coast Guard Air Station Barbers Point on Oʻahu spotted the aluminum boat while searching, 184 miles east northeast of Teraina Island, Kiribati.
The men had reportedly departed on a fishing trip on Monday, July 6, 2015, and were reported missing on Wednesday when they failed to return.
All were reported to be in good condition once they were found on Saturday, July 11, 2015.
