Sorry to hear this. If I weren't so far away I would join in the search. I have been in a boating accident already and know how scary it is. I hope these 2 guys are found quick and in good health.

Hey Bret, I heard they have the ramps closed and aren't allowing anyone on the lake right now... Do you know if that's true?? I was going to head out there earlier until I heard They had it closed.

Is there any organization to the search. News said 30 boats were out searching. Was the boat found in or near deep water, or was it in a shallow area? Sheriff usually have helocoptors these days, have they deployed a helocopter to help in the search. Does it appear that the boat is operational, was the key switch on like it may have run empty and eventually ran out of gas. If it appears to have broken down was it in a place that they may have set off cross country trying to walk out. Just curious, not really a lot of informaton on the posts, much more info on the 2 news articles referenced. Hope it all works out for the best and they are ok. Bud

I"m assuming FWC is on the case as well as local LE.

I know we all are praying for their safe return.
Did they have cell phones that might give off a signal?

Still nothing...


Authorities said Charles Jackson, 26, and Jason Michael Cobb, 30, launched a 15-foot boat around 1 a.m. from Black Hammock Fish Camp near Oviedo, on the southeast part of Lake Jesup. When the men did not return, their families from Deltona and Osteen notified authorities.

Officers from three agencies were searching Lake Jesup for the two men, who have been missing for several hours.

Sheriff’s deputies from Seminole and Volusia counties launched a search, and found their boat about 3/4 of a mile from the camp. However, the men have not been found.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission now has assumed command of the operation.

FWC spokeswoman Lt. Joy Hill said there does not appear to be any damage to the boat, which was found in some cattails. Two life jackets were found in the boat.

Authorities do not know if either man had been wearing a flotation device.

The search was ongoing Saturday night.

you're ahead of the local news with the report of the shoe. However, the sheriff down there
said if anyone can survive this, it's Charles and Jason since they are such good
hunters and capable sportsmen.

The report was they found paddle, beer and pfd's in boat. No damage to boat.

When they open the place back up to boats, I doubt that a boat that's
not current with its registration will get a ticket. The Sheriff was saying
they need boats to help...but that was before sundown.

Prayers and more prayers is what we need now.
