BREAKING NEWS UPDATE: Nick Schuyler Found Clinging To Overturned Boat - Corey Smith and Marquis Cooper Still Missing


USAToday.com has ongoing updates on this situation. As of right now, Nick Schuyler is the only one of the four men who were on the fishing trip that has been found. Nick was found by the Coast Guard clinging to the overturned boat. Here are the latest updates from USAToday.com:

Update, 2:21 p.m. ET: Stu Schuyler, Nick's father, said he spoke with his son and that he had been in the water since Saturday afternoon. The rescued boater is in serious but stable condition. "He looks OK," Stu Schuyler said. "He's got a few cuts and bruises. His temperature is not that far from normal."

Update, 2:25 p.m. ET: Schuyler's mother, Marcia Schuyler, said her son told her he was thinking of her while he was stranded at sea. "'Mom, I kept saying you're not going to go to my funeral' " she said her son told her. "That's what kept him hanging on."

Update, 3:21 p.m. ET: Capt. Timothy Close said his officers have spoken with Nick Schuyler at the hospital, and much of what they learn from him will affect the search for the other three men. He said the search team is using computer models to estimate where the missing men may have drifted to, but that Schuyler's input will help the search. He could not confirm Ray Sanchez's statement that the missing boaters were together after the boat flipped on Saturday.
