Two men, who left Saipan on July 18 and went missing on a seafaring trip to Guam, were found today. Lt. Edward Oingerang, public affairs officer for the U.S. Coast Guard, Guam, confirmed the information, but was unable to comment further.
"The matter remains under investigation," Lt. Oingerang said.
"Coast Guard Sector Guam watchstanders were made aware that the two mariners, Xiao Wei Quin and Yun Liu Red, were recovered 65 miles north-west of Rota, Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands’ by the merchant vessel Mito earlier today. There are no other updates at this time," the Coast Guard wrote on its Facebook page. "We are currently gathering more information about the situation."
The Guam Daily Post last week reported two Chinese men, Xiao Wei Quin and Yun Liu Red, were missing at sea. The Post reported, "The men left Saipan on a 12-foot inflatable skiff, powered by a 40-horsepower outboard motor, in the early morning of July 18." They were headed to Guam.
