The Coast Guard is searching for a woman from Delray Beach who is missing at sea in the Bahamas.

Authorities received an alert from a radio beacon on a catamaran just west of Cay Sal.

Coast Guard crews rescued a man in a life raft. He's been identified as Lewis Bennett. He says his wife Isabella Hellman is missing. She hasn't been seen since Sunday night.

Bennett told authorities his 37-foot catamaran hit something at sea, causing it to sink, when he abandoned the vessel.

The Coast Guard dispatched a helicopter, two airplanes and Cutter crew from Miami and Clearwater to help with the search.

They plan to search into the night.
