Rowers missing in Atlantic

A search was under way in mid-Atlantic yesterday for two British brothers taking part in a 3,000-mile rowing race.

Edward and Matthew Boreham, aged 31 and 28, from Sunbury, south-west London, have been out of contact since last Friday. Organisers of the Port St Charles Barbados Atlantic Rowing Race have received signals from their automatic emergency beacon but can find no trace of the 24ft home- made boat.
