Marquis Cooper Found Alive? (UPDATED)

New, comments

(Note: Please read the below updates, as CBS Channel 10's story was incorrectly reported.)

Hours after one missing boater was rescued, the Coast Guard has apparently found another, Raiders linebacker Marquis Cooper.

UPDATE: We have just learned from Rebecca Cooper that they found Marquis Cooper alive. We are awaiting more detail.

Hopefully Cooper is alright and hopefully the Coast Guard can find Corey Smith and William Bleakley.

UPDATE: CBS Channel 10's (Tampa affiliate) live coverage states that Cooper hasn't been found yet.  I don't know how there could be that big of a miscommunication, but I will past along any new information I hear.

UPDATE II: It appears 10Connects.com jumped the gun, as they have changed their story to this:

UPDATE: We have just learned from a family member that Marquis Cooper may be alive. We are awaiting more detail.

I'll have more as it comes out.

UPDATE III: Click here for an update to this story.  The three men are still missing and none have been located.  The Coast Guard is continuing to search for them.
