South Florida officials are searching the waters off the east coast of Florida for a second day for two missing boaters.

Coast Guard and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission crews began their search off of Fort Pierce on Monday. On Tuesday they were searching an approximately 1,200 square-mile area.

A family member contacted officials around 9:30 p.m. Sunday that two men had not returned from a fishing trip.

The men have been identified as Vincent Faulkner and Eric Ross.
