A 71-year-old man last seen on a sailboat near Santa Catalina Island has been missing for days, according to a California sheriff’s office.
Before his disappearance, Patrick Joseph Hall was seen near Avalon “on a sailboat W43 (gray dingy boat)” on Jan. 6, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a Jan. 16 Facebook post.
Deputies said his family is “concerned for his well-being,” given a recent storm in the area.
Hall stands 6 feet tall and weighs 175 pounds and has gray hair and green eyes, deputies said.
Deputies ask for anyone with information to contact them at 323-890-5500.
Santa Catalina Island is about 50 miles southwest of Los Angeles.
