JUPITER, Fla. – The latest on the search for the two Florida teens who went missing while on a fishing trip off Florida's Atlantic coast:
The U.S. Coast Guard has expanded its search for two 14-year-old Florida boys who went missing while on a fishing expedition.
Petty Officer Anthony Soto said Tuesday that crews are searching in the Atlantic Ocean as far north as Savannah, Georgia, and as far south as Cape Canaveral, Florida, for Perry Cohen and Austin Stephanos.
The pair was reported missing from Jupiter, Florida, on Friday afternoon. They were last seen purchasing $110 worth of gas for their 19-foot boat and were believed to be heading toward the Bahamas. Their capsized boat was found Sunday morning off the coast of Ponce Inlet, more than 180 miles north of where they started their journey.
The search has continued day and night.
Soto said three Coast Guard cutters and a C-130 Hercules airplane searched throughout Monday night for the boys.
