CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (AP) — Coast Guard crews are searching for two men who set out to go sailing from Port Aransas to Galveston but didn't return at the expected time.

The Coast Guard said Monday that they were searching for 27-year-old Patrick Holden and 26-year-old Joe Squibb, who had gone sailing on a 25-foot sailboat.

Holden's wife called the Coast Guard early Monday morning after she did not hear from him at their expected arrival time in Galveston on Sunday night.

It was reported that he left Saturday evening for an overnight trip from Port Aransas to Galveston.

The Coast Guard is conducting a search offshore from Port Aransas to Galveston using helicopters and airplanes.
