FREEPORT, Texas (AP) - Coast Guard personnel are searching for a father and son last seen going fishing on the Brazos (BRAZ’-uhs) River south of Freeport.

Petty Officer 1st Class Andrew Kendrick says authorities do not suspect foul play in Tuesday morning’s disappearance of the two men.

Brazoria County sheriff’s deputies contacted the Coast Guard to report finding an unmanned boat doing circles on the Brazos River. Kendrick says the keys were in the ignition and two cellphones were located on board.

Kendrick identified the missing men as 52-year-old Phillip Orr and 28-year-old Brandon Orr. The Coast Guard did not immediately provide hometowns for the father and son.
