A girlfriend of one of the missing men, both 22, reported him missing. They were both riding a purple jet-ski.

According to the USCG, the missing men didn't have lights, flares, radio or a cell phone, just life jackets and a whistle

Hernando County Sheriff's Office and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission helped with the search.
