The four Americans aboard a yacht hijacked by pirates off the coast of Somalia are dead, according to media reports.

Hijacked last Friday off Oman, the Quest was being piloted toward the Somali coast - and was being shadowed by a U.S. Navy warship.

The Americans were Scott Adam and his wife, Jean, of Marina del Rey, Calif.; and Phyllis Macay and Bob Riggle, both of Seattle.

Since 2004, the Adams lived on their yacht in Marina Del Rey for about half the year. During the rest of the year, they sailed around the world, often distributing Bibles.
