Stuart Bee, 62, was reported missing last Friday after her failed to return to port.

On Sunday, a crew onboard a 225-foot container ship spotted Bee clinging to the bow of his 32-foot boat about 86 miles off of Cape Canaveral.

The container ship, the Angeles, pulled Bee from the water after throwing him a buoy, and then notified the Coast Guard, which immediately deployed a crew to retrieve him.
