TAMPA, Fla. (Reuters) - The U.S. Coast Guard plans to suspend at sunset on Friday its search for two 14-year-old boys from South Florida, a week after they disappeared while on a fishing trip off the state's Atlantic Ocean coast.

The search for Austin Stephanos and Perry Cohen has extended as far north as the Charleston, South Carolina region, some 500 miles north and 100 miles out to sea from Jupiter, Florida, where the teens launched their boat on Friday afternoon.
