He was traveling with his younger sister Maria Camilla who got lost in the sinking boat.


The U.S. Coast Guard pulled five bodies from the sea on Thursday evening before abandoning the search for those missing in the crash.


Authorities were alerted on Tuesday when a merchant ship spotted a man clinging to the deck of a boat 45 miles (72 kilometers) from Fort Pierce, Florida
