A teenager drowns in the Jupiter Inlet two weeks to the day after Austin and Perry went missing, last seen heading out to the ocean through that same inlet.

Police say multiple calls came in around 5:40 Friday afternoon. News crews and divers rushed to the scene of where witnesses had reported seeing a 15 year old boy struggling in the water.

One observer had tried to get to the boy, but the current was too strong.

Just before 7 p.m., officers recovered Edwin Costanon and transported him to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The divers said this was a really challenging dive due to the rocks and current.
