VANISHINGS: Adrift In The Atlantic

On the evening of January 29th, 1982, a small sailboat slipped out of the tiny island of Heirro in the Canaries and headed for Antigua in the Caribbean. Steven Callahan, a 29 year old American - sailing single-handed - planned to reach his destination around February 25th. But a storm left him shipwrecked and with no time to send out a distress signal, and he was adrift in a liferaft 450 miles from the nearest land. No one knew where he was. So far as the outside world was concerned, Callahan had vanished without a trace.
