The United Cajun Navy has made an announcement stating that debris from the missing Carol Ann boat has been discovered off the coast of St. Augustine. The organization is urging the public to assist in the search efforts. The debris, which includes a fish box and buoy balls, was confirmed by the boat’s owner and was found approximately 16 miles off the coast of St. Augustine at coordinates 30 degrees north and 81 degrees west.
Previously, Action News Jax reported on the disappearance of the Carol Ann, which occurred on October 20 while the boat was fishing 80 miles off the coast of Brunswick, Georgia. The vessel had three local men, Tyler Barlow, Caleb Wilkinson, and Dalton Conway, on board.
After the Coast Guard concluded their search, the United Cajun Navy, a non-profit organization, took an active role in continuing the search efforts. The parents of the missing fishermen sought the assistance of the United Cajun Navy and a private pilot to locate their loved ones.
