CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - A 62-year-old boater who had been missing since Friday was found Sunday clinging to his capsized vessel off of Florida's Atlantic coastline, the U.S. Coast Guard said.
The agency had been searching for signs of Stuart Bee and his 32-foot boat since he was reported missing.
Bee left Port Canaveral on Friday, and was reported missing when he didn't return on Saturday.
