News: Missing Raider Player? A Scary Story

ProFootballTalk just posted a story out of Clearwater, FL regarding a missing fishing boat that supposedly had NFL players on it.

CLEARWATER, FL -- The Coast Guard is searching for a missing fishing boat about 50 miles off-shore in the Gulf of Mexico.

According to Coast Guard officials, the 21-foot fishing boat left from a boat ramp in Clearwater Pass Saturday about 6:30 am with 4 people on board.

A dispatcher told ABC Action News 3 of them are NFL players. One of the plays for the Detroit Lions, and one plays for the Oakland Raiders, the dispatcher said.

The boaters were supposed to return sometime after dark but never did, officials said. A friend called the Coast Guard at about 1:30 am and reported them missing.

Officials say the waters in the gulf are extremely choppy and they believe the boat is in distress.

Air and marine crews from the Sand Key and Clearwater Coast Guard stations are searching a 750 square mile area west of Clearwater Pass.

All I can really say is that this does not sound good at all. Regardless of who the Raiders or other NFL players are please keep them in your thoughs and hope that they are rescued.

I'll update this post as new information comes in.

UPDATE

RaiderBeat.com is reporting that LB/Special Teams player Marquis Cooper is the Raiders player that is missing. Authorities found Cooper's truck and boat trailer at the dock. Link
