(CNN) -- Nine people who went missing after reports that a boat capsized off the San Diego coast have been found.

The U.S. Coast Guard located the group on their vessel, which was beached about a half mile south of Tijuana, Mexico.

The Coast Guard launched a search for the missing people after receiving an incident report saying that a 30-foot vessel had capsized.

"The nine people are all accounted for, and the Mexican authorities are handling the situation from there," U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Connie Terrell told CNN.
