2 Boys in a Fishing Boat Vanish In the Bermuda Triangle

Read Time:1 Minute, 35 Second

The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the devil’s triangle, is the stuff of legends.  Just off the East coast of South Florida it extends outward in a fan shape with the northernmost point at Bermuda, and the southernmost point at Puerto Rico, with the western tip at Miami.  This forms a triangle, hence the name.

For generations this area of the ocean has seen many curious disappearances from fighter aircraft to lots of boats of all kinds.  Scientists of course, having little sense of imagination, have scoffed at the stories of alien abductions and other strange but deadly phenomenon that cannot be classified by researchers.

Unfortunately, it has happened again.  Two young boys, out for a day of boating in the triangle, have vanished.  Read the story summary from our friends at Newser:

On Friday afternoon, Austin Stephanos and Perry Cohen bought $110 worth of gas for their 19-foot fishing boat and set off from Jupiter, Fla., in the direction of the Bahamas, in what NBC News reports is the last sighting of the two 14-year-olds.

The two boys were reported missing when they failed to return that evening, reports WPBF, and the US Coast Guard says it has since searched nearly 15,000 square nautical miles for the pair.

The boys’ families don’t believe they would have tried to reach the Bahamas, and are offering a $100,000 reward. “The commitment (of the US Coast Guard) has been fantastic,” Perry’s stepdad tells WPBF.

A Coast Guard rep says the boys were ill-equipped to be out overnight, and that the search has shifted north in the belief that their boat is disabled and drifting. For the story of the Triangle, check out this National Geographic video:

If the parents believed in the triangle those boys would be alive today.

Will I be one of the first to ask why two 14 year olds were allowed on the ocean in a small boat with one motor?

My friend and his fiancee decided to take a day sail from Miami. They never came back. A big storm brewed up about 2 hours into their journey and apparently swamped their boat. No trace of them or the boat was ever found. Whatever is in this area it’s bad, even if all the events have natural causes it’s bad.
