Family rescued from boat are wanted fugitives

Investigators in Texas say a family that was rescued from a sinking sailboat in Galveston Bay are wanted fugitives. Now, they are asking the public for help to find the couple and 7 kids.

"We've always thought there was something wrong," said Letha Cummings, who lives in San Leon, told KHOU News.

It's a mystery that started with a high-end sailboat sinking and a family rescued. The suspicion began when they family never returned to salvage the boat.

"It sat there for a month with no concern whatsoever," said another Jean Mahavier, neighbor. "Boat that size doesn't come for nickels and dimes"
