Found: American, Canadian and Hondurans rescued

On Tuesday, we reported on a massive search effort that was underway near the Bay Islands of Honduras, following the disappearance of eight students who went missing on Saturday.  Their vessel reportedly ran out of gas when they were returning from a brief trip to Roatan.  After combing an area more than four thousand, five hundred square miles, the group was rescued when the boat was located by a U.S. Coast Guard C-130 Hercules flight crew this morning, approximately fifty-five miles northwest of Utila.  They were lifted unto an army helicopter attached to the United States Southern Command in Honduras.  American national Amber Burkett was along with a fellow American, a Canadian and five Hondurans who were found today.  Amber’s mother, spoke with her by phone this afternoon.
