The Coast Guard has found a man they were searching for off the coast of Rehoboth Beach.

The Coast Guard says it's an apparent stabbing incident. One man died at the hospital, while another is in stable condition.

Coast Guard Public Affairs Officer Nick Ameen tells Delaware 105-9 that the incident happened about 9:30 p.m. Thursday when it was thought the man jumped from the portside of the Motor Tanker "Challenger" 24 miles off the coast of Rehoboth Beach; he says a crew-member notified the Coast Guard.

The investigation is ongoing, and the Coast Guard is working with Customs and Border Protection as well as the U.S. State Department.
