Couple, 7 children sought after sailboat ran ashore in San Leon

GALVESTON, TX (KTRK) -- The FBI and Galveston County Sheriff's Office are looking for a man and woman, as well as their 7 children after their sailboat reportedly ran aground near San Leon earlier this year.

According to Galveston County officials, Donald Brian Winberg, 43, and Karlien Richel Winberg, 33, were identified after the FBI in Denver, Colorado, saw the report about the boat coming ashore on October 29. They contacted local officials, saying the Winbergs may be a couple being sought for wire fraud.

The Winbergs have reportedly been on the run since April.

Officials believe the Winbergs are trying to flee the country, possibly to Mexico. The FBI and Galveston County officials are also concerned about the welfare of the 7 children.

They were last seen travelling in a 2004 dark grey Nissan SUV with Texas license plate CVP-3691.

Anyone with any information on the location of the Winbergs are asked to contact any local office of the FBI or the Galveston County Sheriff's Office at 409-770-6084.
