UNDATED -- The Coast Guard continues the search for 4 missing sailors from Rhode Island.

The flying colors -- based out of Washington DC -- sent out an electronic distress beacon on Monday.

The group has not been heard from since.

Officials blame weather-related problems, due to sub-tropical storm Andrea off the southeastern coast of the U.S.

The boat was sailing from the Virgin Islands to Maryland when it went missing.

The missing sailors are:

39-year-old Trey Topping, 34-year-old Jason Franks, 26-year-old Christine Grinavic and 22-year-old Rhiannon Borisoff.
