HONOLULU — Three men who had been missing for three days were rescued from a deserted Pacific island after a U.S. Navy plane spotted the word “help” spelled out in palm leaves on the beach, officials said Saturday.

The men’s families reported them missing Tuesday after they failed to show up at the Micronesian island of Weno, U.S. Coast Guard spokeswoman Melissa McKenzie said.
