APTOPIX Missing Boaters

In this photo released by the U.S. Coast Guard, shows former University of South Florida football player Nick Schuyler clinging to the engine of an overturned boat in the Gulf of Mexico, as the U.S. Coast Guard approaches, Monday March 2, 2009. Schuyler, Marquis Cooper, William Buckley and Corey Smith left Clearwater, Fla, on a fishing trip Saturday morning and did not return. The other three remain missing. Schuyler told rescuers that the 21-foot boat was anchored when it flipped Saturday evening in rough seas and that the others got separated from the boat, Capt. Timothy M. Close said. Schuyler, who was wearing a life vest, had been clinging to the boat since then. (AP Photo/U.S. Coast Guard,HO)
