OVIEDO, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities in central Florida are continuing their search for two fishermen who may have been ejected from their boat on Lake Jesup.

Reports say rescue teams spent much of Sunday searching for 26-year-old Charlie Jackson and 30-year-old Jason Cobb. Family members told the newspaper the men had gone to a bachelor party on Friday night and set out onto the lake just after midnight Saturday.

Crews planned to return to the lake early Monday to search again.
Jackson's 15-foot boat was found Saturday in some cattails north of their camp after relatives reported the men missing.

Authorities believe the men may have been ejected from the boat. It contained two life jackets, two paddles and eight unopened cans of beer.
