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 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:
