Crews from the United States Coast Guard in St. Petersburg and partner agency crews were searching Sunday afternoon for four people boating off Venice.

The Fort Myers Beach Coast Guard said four people were reportedly aboard a 25-foot center console boat approximately 30 miles off Venice.

They were overdue after launching from Venice Inlet on Saturday morning.

On Monday, Lee County Sheriff Carmine Marceno shared a post on X to show how his department is getting involved in the search.

The Coast Guard is asking anyone with any information contact Sector Saint Pete at 866-881-1392.

Meanwhile, they continue to search a vast area, from Long Boat Key all the way south to Sanibel.

The missing boat in the photo isn’t the exact boat that is missing but is a similar model.
