Three fishermen have been rescued in the Federated States of Micronesia after they spent eight days stranded at sea.
The 19-foot skiff was first reported missing on 12 February after it failed to return from a fishing expedition near Chuuk.
Coast Guard planes from Guam searched for several days, before a US Navy plane was diverted from Japan to join the search.
The Navy said its Poseidon aircraft found the skiff and dropped a supply kit, before the survivors were picked up by a nearby police vessel and returned to Chuuk.
It said the skiff had food and water supplies, but there was no safety equipment or radios.
