JUPITER, Fla. (CBSMiami/AP) —  Coast Guard officials are searching for two 14-year old fishermen last seen in the water off Jupiter.

Authorities say Austin Stephanos and Perry Cohen did not return as scheduled Friday from a fishing trip. The pair was last seen buying fuel Friday afternoon in the Jupiter area.

The teens had been fishing from a 19-foot vessel with a single engine center console.

Coast Guard air and sea search-and-rescue crews have covered more than 5,300 square nautical miles, including waters as far north as Melbourne.
