When they failed to show, the US Embassy in Kolonia, the capital city of Pohnpei State, announced they had begun search and rescue efforts.

On Wednesday night, a search vessel reported seeing a flashing light on East Fayu island.

“Since the island was potentially uninhabited and knowing Linus Jack and Sapina Jack had a flashlight in their boat, we directed our search aircraft to overfly the island this morning,” the embassy wrote on Facebook on Thursday.

The US Navy aircraft was able to spot a pair of people signaling for help, having dragged their boat ashore.
