October 7, 2008 12:00:00 AM PDT
Sheriff's divers believe they've found the pleasure boat that disappeared last Thursday. The boat was believed to have the brother of Congresswomen Loretta and Lynn Sanchez and his girlfriend aboard.

Authorities say divers discovered the missing 26-foot boat on the ocean floor five miles south of the entrance to the Los Angeles Harbor.

Recovery teams will try and refloat the hull on Wednesday morning.

Henry Sanchez, 51 and Penny Avila, 48, were aboard the vessel when it apparently struck a barge off of San Pedro.
