TEQUESTA, Fla. (AP) — The mother of one of two Florida teens who went missing at sea is asking the state attorney to get involved in a feud over the other boy’s cellphone.

The cellphone belonging to Austin Stephanos was inside a boat spotted in the Atlantic Ocean last month by the captain of a Norwegian supply ship. The cellphone and two fishing rods and two small tackle boxes were returned to the families. The boat was packed up and is expected to arrive at Port Everglades in May. The boys went missing last July.

The Palm Beach Post reports the mother of Perry Cohen issued a statement Sunday saying the state attorney’s help is needed because Austin Stephanos’ father hasn’t given Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission investigators consent to search his son’s iPhone.
