ROFFS™ Theory of the Search Areas Explained – FOX 35 News Orlando -The Latest on missing boys: Coast Guard still optimistic Article Courtesy: myfoxorlando.com | Originally published July 28, 2015 | Please click here for original article.
The latest on the search for the two Florida teens who went missing while on a fishing trip off Florida’s Atlantic coast:
The Coast Guard says it’s still optimistic two teenage fishermen missing at sea can be found alive.
Chief Petty Officer Ryan Doss says Tuesday that three Coast Guard cutters, a Navy ship and an airplane are still searching from the waters off Daytona Beach, Florida, north through Savannah, Georgia, and that they have no immediate plans to stop.
Though he conceded the probability of finding someone alive decreases as time passes, he notes others have survived longer at sea.
“We know it can happen and we’re hoping it happens again,” he says.
He says the Coast Guard is constantly looking at a mix of factors to determine whether the search should continue.

If Austin Stephanos and Perry Cohen are floating at sea awaiting rescue, as their families and rescuers hope, subtle current-speed changes surrounding the Gulf Stream could drastically alter their drift course — making search efforts more difficult.
“Even if it’s only a quarter of a mile-per-hour difference, well, a quarter of a mile-per-hour in 10 hours starts adding up. You get to be 2 to 3 miles apart, and then you start getting 15 to 20 miles apart. Then you’re 30,” said Mitch Roffer, founder and president of Roffer’s Ocean Fishing Forecasting Service.
“Then if one of those possible trajectories goes into the core of the Gulf Stream, now you’re moving twice as fast,” Roffer said.
“They could be anywhere from 60 to 180 miles away from where they started, just as a function of where they were in the Gulf Stream. That’s a huge difference, between 60 and 180 miles. So you’re talking about a 120-mile variance in your estimate of where they might be,” he said.
ROFFS is a West Melbourne oceanographic consulting company that analyzes currents and pinpoints “convergence zones” along Gulf Stream boundaries where fish are likely to congregate. Roffer’s primary customers are recreational and commercial fishermen.
