Missing boaters found off Jersey coast

A missing fishing boat carrying six men that was the focus of a 130-square-mile search was located at about 7:15 Monday night about 120 miles east of Atlantic City, according to Coast Guard officials.

The search for the 32-foot Black Magic began after the men did not return Sunday morning from an overnight recreational tuna-fishing trip about 85 miles off the Jersey Coast.

The Coast Guard reached them early Tuesday morning and they were expected to return to land later that night.
