A large sailboat was found Thursday adrift in the rough seas stirred up by Hurricane Earl.

Coast Guard officials were working to determine where the boat originated. They said it didn't appear that the boat broke its moorings and drifted away, but they said there have been no reports of a missing boat.

The boat was tossed in 9- to 12-foot seas stirred up by Earl and was found about five miles off Cocoa Beach, Fla., and towed to Port Canaveral by the Coast Guard cutter Shrike.
