MIAMI - United States Coast Guard crews found two men clinging to the hull of a capsized vessel some 12 miles off the coast of Fort Pierce.
The men were spotted Monday morning. They'd been reported missing after not returning from a weekend fishing trip.
The Coast Guard says 37-year-old Justyn Bradley and 38-year-old Cory Bowman departed from Jupiter Inlet and had not returned Sunday evening as planned.
A small boat from Station Fort Pierce and an Air Station Clearwater C-130 aircraft began searching for the men. They were spotted around 8:30 a.m. Monday.
Capt. Austin Gould says the detailed float plan the men filed with their family members helped crews locate the men.
