Rescue crews are searching for at least one person off the Marin County coast after a sailboat sank Monday morning. As of this afternoon, no body had been recovered, according to Lt. Sean Kelly of the Coast Guard.

Authorities said they received a distress signal from a 30-foot boat named "Alma" around 4:15 a.m. The agency was combing the waters by Kirby Cove near the Golden Gate Bridge when it spotted the boat partially submerged near the rocks at Yellow Bluff. The boat eventually sank.

Anyone with information on the incident is encouraged to contact the Sector San Francisco Command Center at (415) 399-3520.
