Louis was missing from past 66 days and finally reunited with his family.
Jordan had been living on his sailboat at a marina in Conway, South Carolina until January then he went to sail do some fishing in the open water. He sailed on January 23 and since then he hasn’t been heard.
It is still unclear how he has survived for more than two months at the sea.
Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Ryan Doss said, “We don’t know where he capsized, we really won’t know what happened to him out there until we talk to him”.
Jordan said he ate fish which he caught.
A coast Guard helicopter crew from North Carolina has airlifted Jordan and was immediately taken to the hospital in Norfolk, Virginia.
Coast Guard spokeswoman Lt. Krystyn Pecora said he is recovering from shoulder injury and Louis father Frank Jordan said his son was dehydrated.
Marilyn Fajardo, a spokeswoman for the Coast Guard’s 7th District said alerts from New Jersey to Miami were issued to look out for Jordan and his boat.
“We’re elated that he survived. We were never able to determine where he was headed,” Doss said. “Without that as part of the equation, it was difficult to come up with a search area.”
