Two California men on a boating trip to Catalina Island and thought to be missing were found safe early Wednesday morning, authorities said. Turns out they had just changed their plans.

Family members of the men contacted Coast Guard officials when the pair did not return to Dana Point Harbor Tuesday evening. Albert Bosco, the 66-year-old owner of the 26-foot sailboat, told his family to contact officials if he and Kirk Williams did not return by 5 p.m. Tuesday.

"Unfortunately, it's one of those situations we deal with often, when people change their plans but don't tell anyone," said a Coast Guard spokesman. The men did not take any radio equipment with them on their trip, he said.
