Yacht Couple Missing in Pirate Seas

I just saw this in the news and thought I would pass it on

Yacht couple missing in pirate seas - Yahoo! News UK

Quote:
A search is under way for a British couple feared to have been hijacked by pirates off the east coast of Africa.

Paul and Rachel Chandler, from Tunbridge Wells in Kent, were heading for Tanzania from the Seychelles in their yacht, the Lynn Rival, when a distress signal was received, and they have not been heard from since.
A Foreign Office spokesman said officials were investigating claims that Somali pirates had seized the couple's yacht. According to reports, a news agency was contacted by a pirate to say the couple were "in our hands now"...
