    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - It's been two months since firefighters Brian McCluney and Justin Walker disappeared during a fishing trip off Florida's east coast.

    Their disappearance set off a massive exhausting search that lasted close to a week and covered more than 90,000 square miles.

    The search uncovered their fishing bag but no sign of the two men.

    Hundreds of fellow firefighters and people in the community volunteered their time and resources to the search.

    The wife of Jacksonville firefighter McClueny's posted to social media announcing a celebration of life planned in his memory on Friday, Oct. 25 at 11 a.m. It will be held at the North Jacksonville Baptist Church, at 8531 Main Street N.
