The owner of a 30-foot sailboat reported to St. Johns County deputies the vessel was stolen earlier this month.

The 53-year-old owner told deputies last week that the 1972 Schooner sailboat had been anchored in the Intracoastal Waterway about a mile north from the Vilano Bridge for about two months.

The man said he last saw the boat on June 23, and when he returned July 8, it was gone.

The sailboat is described as a white fiberglass hull with wood on the top. The vessel had red and green trimming toward the bottom of the boat, and the masts were down. The sailboat also had a 40 horsepower Perkins diesel engine and is valued at $30,000.

Anyone with any information on the theft is asked to call Detective Thomas Keisler at the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office at 904-209-2145 or Crime Stoppers at 888-277-TIPS.
