Watchstanders at the Sector Honolulu Command Center received a report at 11:35 a.m. from a good Samaritan who located the skiff.

A bail bucket, umbrella and a bamboo pole were located inside. There are no identifiable markings or numbers on the skiff with the exception of an outboard 9.9 horsepower Johnson Motor.

There are currently no reported signs of distress or missing persons in the area.

Anyone with information that may help identify the owner or operator of the skiff is asked to contact the Coast Guard Sector Honolulu Command Center at 808-842-2600.
