U.S. Coast Guard crews have found two missing boaters, but continue to search for four others whose fishing boat was found 100 miles south of their destination in the Bahamas.

Coast Guard Petty Officer James Judge says Guillermo Zarabozo and Kirby Archer were found in a life raft and appear to be fine.

Still missing are captain Jake Branam, Kelly Branam, Scott Campbell and Sammy Cary.

Judge says the 47-foot sports fisher "Joe Cool" left Miami for the Bimini islands on Saturday. The boaters were reported missing Saturday night.

The fishing boat was found last night near Cay Sal without its life raft. Cay Sal is about 100 miles south of where the "Joe Cool" was headed.
