HORESHOE BEACH, Fla. -- The Coast Guard continues to be on the lookout for two men who were ejected out of their boat in the Gulf of Mexico north of St. Petersburg Saturday.

Rescuers say a total of four men were on a 21-foot vessel when it encountered stormy weather.

A Coast Guard helicopter spotted the capsized boat Sunday and rescued Frank Dipaula, 78, of Keystone Heights and Tom Grant, 67.

Both survivors were reported to be disoriented and exhausted and were transported to medical facilities.

Tom Morrison, 65, of Jacksonville and Glenn Harris are still missing.

The Coast Guard as well as Florida Fish and Wildlife continue their search.
