Keaton Beach, Florida - After a four day search, another boater spotted the capsized vessel around 2:30 Wednesday afternoon, 51 miles south of Keaton Beach.

Rescuers confirmed it is the 20 foot Sea Craft belonging to 24-year-old Matthew Hutchinson. Hutchinson, his 20-year-old girlfriend Amanda Player, his best friend 23-year-old Jeremiah Giffin, and a co-worker Dominic Barros left the Keaton Beach Marina around noon Saturday and never returned to land. Seas were calm when they left, but reached about 6 to 8 feet as the day passed.

The Coast Guard has been using planes and boats in the search. They're still looking for the missing boaters.

A family member tells us no life jackets were found in the boat.
