Information leading to the safe return of a boat stolen from the Florida Keys last month may be eligible for a $10,000 reward from insurers, the Monroe County Sheriff says.

A 35-foot, Intrepid Cuddy Cabin boat vanished Aug. 19 from a lift behind a house on Bulevar De Palmas in Marathon, Monroe County Sheriff's Deputy Becky Herrin said.

The boat had twin Yamaha 300 horsepower four stroke engines; a Garmin chartplotter; radar and auto pilot systems and is estimated to be worth $300,000, she said. The owner, who resides in Illinois, learned it was missing when a neighbor called him, the agency said.

Monroe County Sheriff's Office asks anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers of the Florida Keys at 1-800-346-TIPS or at www.tipsubmit.com. Callers may remain anonymous.
