With the statute of limitations about to expire on Monday, the family of Perry Cohen announced Friday that they are filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the family of Austin Stephanos.
Both boys were 14 on the day they disappeared after setting sail from the Jupiter Inlet. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has ruled there was probable cause to charge Carly Black, Austin's mother, but the state chose not to file charges.
The attorney for the Cohen family says the lawsuit is about "truth, accountability and justice," after the FDLE found that Black waited until hours after she realized the boys were missing to contact the Cohens and authorities.
The teens were on a boat owned by the Black family when they disappeared two years ago this Monday.
