A missing boater is safe a day after authorities confirmed that they found him alive following his disappearance.

Local10.com reports that the U.S. Coast Guard confirmed that 54-year-old Juan Evelio Ferrer Gonzales is safe after a good Samaritan alerted them to a disabled boat approximately 10 miles off the Jupiter Inlet coast.

When the Coast Guard investigated they found Gonzales and another person in the vessel. The two are reportedly in good condition.

Cmdr. Eric Paré of the Coast Guard said that the Coast Guard is happy to have found Gonzales and that it “encourage[s] mariners file a float plan, telling someone where they are going and when they are returning, have a good working VHF radio, and to always wear a life jacket.”
