Coast Guard Continues Search for Couple off Oceanside

SAN DIEGO — The Coast Guard’s search for Oceanside residents Josh Hartman, 28, and his fiancée, Ana Martin, 30, continues today. The Coast Guard has collaborated with the Mexican Navy who will search Mexican waters in the vicinity of the 32-foot fishing vessel Pelican.

The Pelican was confirmed by the Mexican navy last night to be aground on a beach just north of Rosarito, Baja California, Mexico. The Coast Guard has been coordinating with the Mexican navy to get more information on the whereabouts of the couple.

“The assistance provided in past two days by the Mexican Navy has been outstanding, and greatly appreciated,” said Cmdr. Daniel LeBlanc, acting Coast Guard Sector San Diego Commander. “We will continue to coordinate our search efforts with the Mexican Navy.”

If anyone has any information on this case, please contact the U.S. Coast Guard Command Center at (619)278-7033.

The Coast Guard has flown 29 hours with a MH-60 Jayhawk helicopter and HC-130 Hercules fixed wing aircraft covering 6,419 square miles of ocean in the last 42 hours of the search.

    Josh we’re praying for you both. Please come home safe. Why hasn’t Mexico released the boat so the onboard mapping system can be checked? Have they tracked the location of his last call to his Dad to find out where he was when that call was made that they were on their way back? Please post details as they become available!
