The renewed search comes after authorities received a tip Tuesday night that a person or object had been spotted floating off the coast of Savannah, Georgia. 

"So there's no doubt in my mind that they're still out there and they're still waiting to be found," Austin Stephanos' father told Newsy's partner, WPTV. 

Austin Stephanos and Perry Cohen, both fourteen, went missing last Friday. Two days later, their boat was found capsized. 

So far, the Coast Guard says it's covered almost 31,000 square nautical miles in its search for the missing teens.
