(CNN) — The families of two 14-year-old boys who went missing on a fishing trip off the Florida coast believe they’ll be found, one of the boys’ mothers said Monday morning.
“None of us are giving up hope they’ll find those boys,” Pamela Cohen, the mother of Perry Cohen, said on CNN’s “New Day.” “I have 100% faith they’ll find our boys.”
Perry Cohen and Austin Stephanos were last seen Friday around Jupiter, Florida. The Coast Guard said Sunday that teams had spotted the 19-foot boat in which the teens had been traveling. The capsized vessel was discovered 67 nautical miles (about 77 miles, or 124 kilometers) off Florida’s Ponce de Leon Inlet, the Coast Guard said.
“This is still considered an active search and rescue case, and we maintain our perpetual optimism that we’re going to find somebody,” Petty Officer 1st Class Stephen Lehmann told reporters.
The boys are still missing and the family is offering a $100,000 reward.
The Coast Guard is involved in the search and the boat was found capsized.
