SOUTH PADRE ISLAND - Four Mexican fishermen, missing since Friday, have been found and rescued.

The U.S. Coast Guard says the fishing boat was reported overdue by Mexican officials on Saturday and a search by a Coast Guard helicopter crew found the boat near the Port Mansfield channel on Sunday. On Monday, the Coast Guard crew then spotted the fishermen on the beach eleven miles north of where the boat was found and then rescued.
