(Newser) – The US Coast Guard has found a second body four days after a family disappeared off the coast of Florida, WESH reports. The body was found about four miles from a debris field where the first body was discovered Wednesday. Neither body has been identified, but a bucket found floating a few miles away contained birth certificates for the family, according to CBS News. Ace Kimberly, 45, lives on the 29-foot sailboat with his children: Roger, 13, Donny, 15, and Rebecca, 17. They were last heard from when Kimberly contacted his brother Sunday night regarding large waves and thunderstorms. The debris field was found 33 miles off the coast. Searchers believe they may have seen a flare go up shortly before 2:30am Thursday, and the Coast Guard is "holding out hope" for survivors. (Read more missing person stories.)
