Report: Thunderstorms Slowing Search for Missing Fla. Teens
Janice Dean reported "On The Record" tonight that the search continues for two missing Florida teens who were last seen Friday buying supplies for their fishing trip, but thunderstorms are slowing the process.
Perry Cohen and Austin Stephanos' overturned 19-foot fishing boat was found Sunday about 67 miles off Ponce de Leon Inlet in Volusia County.
Coast Guard crews reported that the "engine cover was found to be missing along with one personal flotation device still on the boat," Fox News reported.
Janice Dean said tonight that there were confirmed thunderstorms in the area where the boys disappeared on Friday.
She added that for the past 48 hours, there have been more thunderstorms, which has slowed the search and rescue mission.
The good news, she said, is that the weather has cleared up over the last 12 hours, and the Coast Guard will continue the search overnight.
She said that the next day or so should be clearer than it has been, but there will be daytime thunderstorms in the area in the late afternoon on Tuesday and Wednesday.
"They are saying that the boys could be alive," Dean said. "I have been hearing from the Coast Guard that this is an active search and rescue, and, of course, hopes and prayers that we rescue those boys alive."
