The Coast Guard reports that they are searching for an overdue 39-foot boat with three people onboard Friday.

The boat was due to return to Warrenton, Oregon, Wednesday. The co-owner of the Kay Anne reported the boat overdue late Thursday at Coast Guard Station Coos Bay.

The Coast Guard Cutter Mellon, homeported in Seattle, was diverted 70 miles due west of Siuslaw River, Oregon, to help in the search. A C-130 Hercules search plane crew was launched from Coast Guard Air Station Sacramento, California, to assist.

The Kay Ann is described as having a white hull with red and blue trim.
