A Coast Guard helicopter searched Lake Superior around the Apostle Islands today for a father and son after their sailboat was reported missing.

The 44-year-old man and his 11-year-old son were found unharmed and safely underway after a helicopter from Traverse City, Mich., and U.S. and Canadian Coast Guard vessels searched over 2,000 square miles.

They had been reported overdue when they did not arrive at their destination Wednesday after reporting they were heading in to avoid bad weather.
