The U.S. Coast Guard continues to search for a Pensacola man and his two sons.

The men launched their 17-foot Cape Horn boat from Navy Point Boat Ramp in Pensacola on Wednesday around 5 a.m. and haven’t been seen since.

The missing fishermen are identified as David Washington, Sr., David Washington, Jr., 65, and Darryl Washington, 62.

Meghan Cooper told Channel 3 News Reporter Renee Beninate it was a family tradition for the men to gather and fish for red snapper.

The family told us the 86-year-old father had just had heart surgery last month.

The family is receiving updates every 2-hours from the U.S. Coast Guard.
