Stolen Boat & Missing Kids

Yesterday, the sailing website Latitude 38 reported that a yacht had been stolen from Club Nautique’s Ballena Isle location between about 5-9 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 4.

Today, Marianne Armand of Club Nautique says that the boat — the Hunter 41 Unleashed — was apparently taken by a man with two children, whose mother (of South San Francisco) had not given permission for the kids to be traveling with their father.

The boat and its three passengers, Armand said, were reportedly sighted at around 6 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 5, near Mare Island.

Alameda Police and other law-enforcement officers are working on the case. If you have seen the boat of have any information, please contact APD immediately, and call Club Nautique directly at (510) 865-4700.
