Coast Guard suspends search for missing sailboat, possible hoax ( link )
Coast Guard officials said they have been unable to pinpoint the location where a distress call originated reporting what was said to be a sinking sailboat in the ocean south of San Francisco.

On Tuesday, the Coast Guard suspended its search for four people, including two young children, and began investigating the possibility that the call may have been a hoax.

Searchers using aircraft and sea vessels found no signs of distress, no signs of debris, no reports of missing people, Coast Guard spokesman Mike Lutz said.

We are looking for additional information. We handle every situation like its a life threatening situation unless we are 100% sure its a hoax.
