By Stephanie Petit, PEOPLE // June 24, 2016
(PEOPLE) – A family member has confirmed that a body found in the search for a missing Sarasota, Florida, father and his three teen children is that of 17-year-old Rebecca Kimberly.
The family, who had reportedly been living on a sailboat in Sarasota for a year, has been identified as Ace Kimberly, 45, Roger, 13, Donny, 15, and Rebecca, according to the U.S. Coast Guard. They were last seen Sunday on a 29-foot sailboat off of Florida’s Gulf Coast.
The aunt of the missing children, Sadie Dilts, told Today, “They hadn’t heard from them since Sunday, so then I kind of figured that it wasn’t good. Feels like I’ve lost one of my own kids.”
Ace had been raising the three children ever since their mother, Pauline Solsberry, divorced him nine years ago.
