Coast Guard still optimistic about missing teen fishermen
The Coast Guard says it's still optimistic two teenage fishermen missing at sea can be found alive.
Chief Petty Officer Ryan Doss says Tuesday that three Coast Guard cutters, a Navy ship and an airplane are still searching from the waters off Daytona Beach, Florida, north through Savannah, Georgia, and that they have no immediate plans to stop.
Though he conceded the probability of finding someone alive decreases as time passes, he notes others have survived longer at sea.
"We know it can happen and we're hoping it happens again," he says.
He says the Coast Guard is constantly looking at a mix of factors to determine whether the search should continue.
