Families, volunteers still search for missing fishermen

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) – The families of two missing teenage fishermen from Palm Beach County say they’re trying to determine whether a couple of life jackets and a white cushion can be linked to the boys.

A spokesman for the families of the 14-year-old boys told The Palm Beach Post (http://pbpo.st/1MeN96U ) the cushion was found in Wassaw Sound near Savannah on Georgia’s coastline. The life jackets were found south of that near St. Catherines.

The items resemble items that were the 19-foot boat Austin Stephanos and Perry Cohen were on when they disappeared during a fishing trip off Jupiter Inlet two weeks ago. Their boat was found July 26 capsized off Daytona Beach.

The newspaper reports a canine team is working to see if there is a match between the items and the teens.
