Mystery Deepens In Missing FL Boys Case


FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) – A pilot who was part of a massive search to find two missing teen fishermen told investigators he’s positive he saw one floating on debris two days after their boat capsized.

Bobby Smith told Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission investigators reconstructing the disappearance of Perry Cohen and Austin Stephanos he was flying off the coast of Georgia on July 26 at about 1,000 feet when he saw two white pieces of debris tied together with an orange life jacket.

Smith’s observations are part of a state report just released on the plight of the teens.

The boys’ parents believe they may have been abducted.
