The U.S. Coast Guard located the crew of a 34-foot sailboat reported overdue and probably in the vicinity of Lanai's Manele Bay on Saturday.
The four mariners - two men and two women - were found west of Lanai at 9:30 a.m. in "good condition" and "not in any distress," Coast Guard officials said.
The crew aboard the Larina, which departed Honolulu's La Marina Yacht Club on Wednesday, was found by a Coast Guard crew aboard an HC-130 Hercules aircraft. The boaters were confirmed visually and via VHF radio, the Coast Guard reported.
They were reported overdue after there had been no phone call from the crew for more than 24 hours.
The Coast Guard's command center in Honolulu received a call about the overdue vessel at 6:48 p.m. Friday. At 9 a.m. Saturday, the Coast Guard launched the Hercules aircraft from Air Station Barbers Point.
The crew members aboard the Larina had filed an informal plan with a friend on shore. It stated that they were planning to head to Manele Bay on Lanai for a seven-day trip.
The Coast Guard advises mariners to file a plan with a responsible friend, family member or local harbor master. The plan should include the date and time of departure, the planned destination and when boaters plan to return.
Also Saturday, the Maui Fire Department responded to a 9:14 a.m. report that two female paddle boarders were missing after they had been seen about a mile off of Kealia Pond in north Kihei. The person who had seen them called firefighters after the caller had lost sight of the women.
Firefighters from Kihei, Kahului and a crew on the department's Air One helicopter searched for the women, and the Coast Guard was called in to assist, said Fire Services Chief Lee Mainaga.
At 12:30 p.m., the search was suspended after no family or friends had come forward to report the women missing, Mainaga said. The search would be resumed if there were a report of the paddle boarders missing, he added.
