A single-masted yacht with two Russians on board has gone missing in the Pacific Ocean.

The Russian International News Agency reports that the boat, carrying a 38-year-old man and a 40-year-old woman, was on a voyage to Vanuatu from Los Angeles.

The yachtsmen's friends sounded the alarm over their whereabouts on Sunday after the yacht went missing near the Marshall Islands.
