Coast Guard continues search for missing sailors
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.
