UPDATE: Crews Continue Search for Missing Boy that Fell into Pensacola Bay

UPDATE:
ESCAMBIA COUNTY, Fla. -- Crews are searching Pensacola Bay for a 4-year-old boy that fell off a boat.

The boats are searching the waters between NAS Pensacola and Fort Pickens.

An Escambia County spokesperson says crews from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the Coast Guard will be taking over the search completely.

A new team will be continuing the search this morning.

Searchers were on boats for several hours Saturday, covering nearly 20 square miles.  They found no sign of the child.

The boy went into the water around 4 p.m. Saturday afternoon.

Investigators say the boy was with his grandfather in a boat.  The boat was standing still, but when it started to move, the boy fell overboard.

The boy was not wearing a life vest.
