Boat and iPhone of teens lost at sea discovered months later
TEQUESTA, Fla. - The parents of one of two teenagers lost at sea last summer say their boat and an iPhone has been found.
The Palm Beach Post reported Saturday that the parents of Perry Cohen said the 19-foot long boat was spotted 100 miles off the coast of Bermuda. The boat still had some personal items in it including an iPhone belonging to Austin Stephanos.
Last July, Stephanos and Cohen - both 14 - left Jupiter Inlet in the boat and never returned. Lengthy searches by the Coast Guard and private pilots turned up no clues.
The Coast Guard initially located the boat off New Smyrna Beach, but the company hired by the Coast Guard to bring the boat back couldn't find it.
