US Coastguard say a naval ship has found the hull of the missing Southampton yacht, Cheeki Rafiki

The US Coastguard says a US naval ship searching in the Atlantic has found the hull of the Southampton yacht, Cheeki Rafiki. They located the boat a week after the vessel and her four-man crew went missing on a voyage back from the Caribbean.

A Navy diver has confirmed the name of the yacht and has banged on the hull to see if anyone is inside. The cabin of the boat appeared to be flooded. They have not found the yacht's life raft.
