MIAMI, Fla. — The US Coast Guard is continuing the search for a twenty-nine-foot vessel with 20 people aboard.

The vessel was reportedly on its way to Lake Worth, Florida.

It was last known to be departing Bimini, Bahamas, Monday but did not arrive as expected.

The coast guard says they have searched approximately 20,000 square miles for about 43 hours.
