Lost At Sea, Sailor Calls Home For Help - Ken Barnes - Rescued by Ship

(AP) The calls have been steady, giving updates about a Southern California man adrift alone on his storm-battered sailboat off the tip of South America.

They haven't always come from law enforcement and other officials, though. Word of Ken Barnes' status has come from the stranded sailor himself, who has been able to ease his family's concerns by satellite phone as an intense search-and-rescue effort continues off the coast of Chile with hopes that help will reach him by Thursday evening.
