Coast Guard: Search for missing boaters ongoing

TEQUESTA, Fla. (AP) – Coast Guard and state officials have left the Florida home of one of two missing teenage boaters, with a spokesman saying the search for them is still “active and open.”

Capt. Mark Fedor of the Coast Guard said Wednesday: “There’s been a lot of rumors that the search has been suspended. I just want to refute that. The search has not been suspended.”

The Coast Guard and Florida Fish and Wildlife officers were at the home of 14-year-old Perry Cohen for almost an hour Wednesday afternoon.

As they left, Fedor offered no further comment and didn’t take questions.

It was unclear whether the family would make a statement.

Also missing is 14-year-old Austin Stephanos. Wednesday marked the sixth day of the search as crews expanded the search area north into South Carolina.

Their capsized boat was found Sunday.
