South Carolina man rescued after 66 days missing at sea

CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - A Conway man has been rescued after 66 days missing at sea, according to the US Coast Guard.

Louis Jordan, 37, and the sailing vessel Angel, were initially reported missing by his family Jan. 29. Jordan reportedly left the Bucksport Marina on Friday, January 23.

Jordan was spotted by crews aboard a 1,085-foot, German-flagged vessel at around 1:30 p.m. Thursday, according to the US Coast Guard.

Jordan and his sailboat were located approximately 200 miles east of Cape Hatteras, North Carolina. The German crews took him aboard.

A Coast Guard MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter crew launched from Air Station Elizabeth City, North Carolina, at approximately 3:40 p.m.

“The helicopter is scheduled to meet the Houston Express, hoist Jordan and transport him to Sentara Norfolk General Hospital in Norfolk,” said the US Coast Guard.
