MADIERA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A charter captain says the search for two NFL players and another man off Florida's Gulf Coast has become a subdued effort to find their remains.
Capt. Marti Heath said Thursday that charter boats will continue to search as they take fishermen out. That's after a dozen or so boats conducted dedicated searches Wednesday.
The Coast Guard called off its hunt Tuesday for Oakland Raiders linebacker Marquis Cooper, free-agent NFL defensive lineman Corey Smith and former South Florida player William Bleakley.
The friends have been missing since their boat overturned Saturday in rough seas. A fourth man, Nick Schuyler, was rescued Monday.
