Fairbanks man goes missing in Florida

A 40 year old Fairbanks man is the subject of area-wide search in ocean waters between Fort Myers and Key West, Florida.

That's according to the Miami Herald.

The news agency reports that the U.S. Coast Guard received a distress radio beacon from Jay Rydberg's boat, the 39 foot "Trimaran," about 30 miles north of Key West.

Coast Guard officials say Rydberg left Fort Myers on Monday, and never arrived in Key West, as he was scheduled to do on Tuesday.

The Seventh Coast Guard District launched a cutter and air crew from Miami to search for Rydberg.

This is a developing story, and News Center 11 will have more on this story as information becomes available.
