The discovery of a boat off the Bermuda coast has been identified as belonging to two 14 year old boys who never returned from a fishing trip. Last summer Florida teens Perry Cohen and Austin Stephanos got lost at sea after some severe weather hit.

Their 19 foot vessel was found with personal items on board including a cell phone. The boat was identified by its engine serial number and a marine store sticker. Following the disappearance the Coast Guard stated that they had information that the boys may have told others they were planning to go to Bermuda.


Nothing was found on board to hint at where the missing boys might have ended up. A foundation started by one of the missing boys mother has released this statement on their facebook page: “This is an open Missing Persons case, and we hope that FWC reopens their investigation and utilizes the expert resources of other government agencies as well as the private sector if necessary to extrapolate the data from the recovered IPhone (found on the boat).”

The Coast Guard has ceased looking for the boys and has estimated that someone could survive up to five days in those waters at that time of the year. The mothers of the two boys remain optimistic however and a private search is still in order.
