SAN DIEGO — The F.B.I. says there’s a possibility a missing boy could be on a sailboat heading to San Diego.
Nine-year-old Billy Hansen had spent the summer with his father Jeff Hansen in Seattle and was due back home in Pennsylvania two weeks ago. But instead of boarding a flight home, agents believe the boy sailed away on a boat owned by his father.
And they think San Diego could be a port of call.
“Mr. Hansen is an avid sailor who has sailed great distances, they could be on his boat sailing anywhere along the California coast headed to Mexico, it’s possible they could be stopping in San Diego to get supplies and get replenished” said Darrell Foxworth, F.B.I. Special Agent.
Another concern, according to the F.B.I., is that Jeff Hansen has violent tendencies that might manifest in physical abuse of the boy.
