U.S. Coast Guard Mid-Atlantic is searching for an overdue 30-foot Catalina sailboat that was last known to be in eastern North Carolina.

Officials say the Atrevida II has a bluish-purple hull, with a white superstructure, and white sails. Two people, Kevin Hyde, age 64, and Joe DiTommasso76, are believed to be on board.

They are traveling from Cape May, New Jersey to Marathon, Florida and officials say the sailboat was last seen on December 3, when it departed Oregon Inlet on its way to Jupiter, FL. Atrevida II may have stopped in Morehead City, but this is not confirmed.

Anyone with information regarding the missing boat is asked call the Coast Guard Atlantic Area Command Center at 757-398-6700.
