An Hawaiian fisherman lost at sea for 12 days, mayday call of his life Tuesday.

67-year old Ron Ingraham placed two mayday calls on Thanksgiving Day, saying his 25-foot sailboat was taking on water and in danger of sinking.

Crews combed about 12,000 miles, then called off the search on December 1.

Yesterday the coast guard in Honolulu received another, seven second mayday call from Ingraham.

Crews found him alive, but weak, hungry, and dehydrated.
