Hey message board, your help is needed!
I'm trying to help a friend, Angie, she is looking for family members aboard a 97 foot schooner, the SS Encounter. They are 2 weeks out of Tampa, bound for Belize, other ports-of-call unknown. They are both experienced and often travel up and down the coast of Florida. US Coast Guard has been contacted. If any of you are in Belize, please be on the lookout for the ENCOUNTER or try to reach them by VHF marine radio, also please ask local dive shops to help be on the look out and try to reach them by marine radio. Should contact be made, please advise them to contact Angie in the US and advise her of their location and they are bound. Thanks

Please verify the length of vessel. A schooner 97' long would only be able to enter Belize at English Caye main channel to Belize City or possibly south around Dangriga or Big Creek Channel.
You mention "both experienced" but a vessel that size would require a fairly large crew to sail it... probably 5-6 people minimum.

Good Morning Jesse

Thanks for your come back, Angie got the following late last night.

Mello writes:
"We're home safe & sound in Placenia, Belize, Central America. The sailing trip took 9 days and we took a 2 day layover in Cozumel, a beautiful island off the coast of Mexico."

Angie didn't confirm size but did say it was just two on board.

Thanks again..... R.
