Missing Charter Boat Capitan Found Safe

Three men were on the water aboard the Cedar Roost Sail Charter heading north toward St. Augustine from Ponce Inlet Monday when the 22 foot vessel  was hit by a large wave  sending the Captain overboard.

The other two passengers contacted  the Coast Guard around 5:00 p.m and the boat and helicopter search for the Sail Boat Captain, Brian Oliver, 45 of St. Augustine began and continued late into the night.

The boat was anchored off and remains off shore. With no knowledge of how to maneuver the vessel the other two passengers were taken to the Coast Guard Station Ponce De Leon Inlet in New Smyrna Beach.

The missing boater washed ashore south of St. Augustine near a Beach Resort in Palm Coast. He reportedly used a cooler to stay afloat, and had to swim more than two miles to shore. He was found at 12:20 a.m. Tuesday by a security guard who stated that he seemed to be in good condition when he found him.
