In a statement released today, US Coast Guard officials have said that no debris has been found in the search for the missing yachtsmen that "correlates to the Cheeki Rafiki."
A wooden plank and foam had previously been spotted by a captain involved in the search for the four British sailors, and the sighting was reported to the US Coast Guard.
"We take reports of debris very seriously and, at this time, no debris or objects reported during this search correlate to the Cheeki Rafiki."
Search teams have covered an area spanning 12,000 square miles since resuming the search on Tuesday.
With no sign of a life raft or of debris, and with nearly 20,000 square miles having been searched, the hunt continues for another day.
Veteran yachtsman Tony Bullimore tells ITV News that there is a "strong possibility" the yachtsmen are still alive in the life raft.
