CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) - Two NFL players are among a group of
boaters reported missing off Florida's Gulf Coast.
Sports agent Ron Del Duca said his client, Detroit Lions
defensive end Corey Smith, and Oakland Raiders linebacker Marquis
Cooper were two of the four boaters who were reported missing
Sunday morning by the Coast Guard.
The Coast Guard issued a statement saying the boaters were on a
21-foot vessel that left Clearwater Pass on Saturday morning for a
fishing trip and did not return as expected. Crews used a
helicopter and a 47-foot motor-life boat to search a 750-square
mile area west of Clearwater Pass on Sunday.
