17-Foot Boat Engine Dies Near Rancho Palos Verdes:

A 17-foot boat that went missing near Rancho Palos Verdes with three people aboard was found today, with everyone safe, and was being towed to shore, the U.S Coast Guard reported.

“The boat was found by a third party vessel about 8:40 a.m.” said U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Tobias Dodgen. “Everyone on board is safe.”

Dodgen also said the boat was being towed to a harbor so that repairs could be made.

The boat left Avalon Harbor on Santa Catalina Island with “one male and two females” aboard about 8 p.m. Sunday and was last seen near Rancho Palos Verdes, said Adam Eggers, a civilian Coast Guard spokesman. It was headed for the Redondo Beach area.

“A 911 call was sent out to L.A. County Lifeguards at about 9:30 (Sunday night) that their engine had died and they were unable to get it started,” Eggers said. The boat had no radio and the cellphone company told the Coast Guard the phone had died.

The Coast Guard launched a helicopter and boats and began the search, along with Los Angeles County Fire Department Lifeguards, at 9:56 p.m. Sunday, said Los Angeles County Dispatch Supervisor Robert Diaz. The Long Beach Fire Department was asked to join the search at 11:12 p.m., Diaz said. But L.A. County Fire got out of the search after 1 a.m., he said.

A Long Beach-based Coast Guard helicopter stayed on the search all night, its pilot and crew equipped with night vision goggles. It was replaced around 6 a.m. by a helicopter from San Diego, Eggers said. The Marina del Rey-based 87-foot Coast Guard cutter Halibut also joined the search this morning.

The search centered off Rancho Palos Verdes, San Pedro and Redondo Beach, Eggers said.
