Coast Guard finds capsized boat, teen fishermen still missing
TEQUESTA, Fla. - The Coast Guard reported Sunday they have found the capsized boat of two missing Florida teens who didn't return Friday from a fishing trip, but have not found the missing boys.
Perry Cohen and Austin Stephanos are both 14 years old, and were last seen Friday afternoon in the Jupiter area buying fuel for their 19-foot boat.
Coast Guard air and sea crews had expanded their search farther north along the coast. The search has covered more than 14,000 square nautical miles so far.
On Sunday NFL Hall of Famer Joe Namath offered a $100,000 reward for information leading authorities to their whereabouts. Perry is Namath's neighbor in Tequesta, and said both boys are skilled boaters.
"We've got to believe in their wherewithal," he said.
