Missing yacht: No sightings, says US Coast Guard

The US Coast Guard says there have been no sightings in their search for four British sailors missing in the Atlantic.

A search by the US Coast Guard was called off on Sunday but was resumed following an official request from the UK government.

An online petition, set up to urge the US Coast Guard to resume the search, attracted more than 200,000 signatures.

The Coast Guard said that around 9,000 sq miles had been searched and there had, as yet, been no sightings of a life-raft, debris or a boat.
