The fate of some 40 whales stranded in a remote region off Florida's Everglades National Park was unclear Friday, with officials saying they had lost track of more than half.
Twenty-four of the mammals were unaccounted for, Blair Mase of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration told reporters, calling the development "encouraging."
We are "hoping they are out to sea," she said in a conference call.
But, she added, that was not "certain."
