Witnesses say the woman was too weak to get out of the boat. KARE 11 reports the two left Minnesota on Sept. 5. Authorities are not saying whether she may have left willingly with the man. Names have not been released, although the woman is reported to be in her 50s. The FBI and the Coast Guard are investigating.
