A candlelight vigil will be held in Jupiter Sunday night for the two teen boaters that disappeared at sea last July.
Sunday marks one year since Perry Cohen and Austin Stephanos were reported missing from Jupiter Inlet. The ceremony will be held at 8 p.m. at the Jupiter Inlet — 500 Captain Armour’s Way.
More than two dozen other vigils will be held around the state and nation as well. To find the location nearest you click here.
The two 14-year-olds from Tequesta had gone on a fishing trip alone and never returned. The Coast Guard suspended its search on July 31 after a 16-day search, but private parties continued to scour coastlines in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia for nine more days.
Never miss a local story.
In April, a crew from Norway found the teens’ boat off the coast of Bermuda. However, the boat is now back in hands of law enforcement.
The teens’ parents are asking supporters to use #LightTheCoast hashtag during the ceremonies.
