Missing boater's wife posts 'miracles happen' hours before tackle bag found
08/19/2019 7:46am

The wife of one of two firefighters missing at sea clung to hope Monday, saying miracles happen on Day 3 This is Day 3.Hours later, Stephanie McCluney announced that her husbands tackle bag was found 50 nautical miles off the coast of St. Augustine. The Coast Guard confirmed it sent crews to the area. On the third day of searching for Brian McCluney, a firefighter and paramedic with the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department, and Justin Walker, another firefighter from Virginia, the U.S. Coast Guard announced that crews had covered 46,800 miles of ocean, with an estimated 108 hours of active searching.More than 35 boaters were on the water by sunrise Monday to help search for the two men, who disappeared after leaving on a fishing trip Friday from Port Canaveral. Many of those were from JFRD or neighboring fire departments.This is still absolutely a rescue mission, JFRD Chief Keith Powers said. We are talking about a decorated combat veteran, a firefighter paramedic. This guy McCluney has the skills. Hes been raised on the water all his life.News4Jax was on the water Monday aboard a 24-foot center console belonging to the Freedom Boat Club that is very similar to the one thats been missing since Friday. Its captain, Burke Bell, is also optimistic the men will be found.These guys are well trained. They know what they are doing. We are hoping theyve got this under control, Capt. Burke Bell said. The Coast Guard, theyre professionals. Theyve done it before many times. Just hoping the best. BY THE NUMBERS: Searching for firefighters lost at seaWATCH: Vic Micolucci out with boaters searchingMcCluneys wife, Stephanie, has been calling for prayers throughout the search and gave those following the drama hope on Monday when she posted on her Facebook page about 2 p.m. that her husbands tackle bag had been found, and she confirmed it was his.I wholeheartedly believe this is a bread crumb they threw overboard to say, We are here, come find us, Stephanie McCluney wrote. I am standing firm on my face in prayer and that this be our Lord and savior guiding our path. Please continue to send prayers, donations to aid the search at JFRD.com. According to the Coast Guard, two 87-foot patrol boats searched coastal waters from the Port Canaveral area up north to Jacksonville -- and about 80 miles offshore -- on Monday Over the weekend, the search went as far north as Charleston, South Carolina.Others, including those from First Coast Navy Fire Stations 3 and 4, scoured the beaches at Naval Station Mayport on Monday looking for anything that may have come ashore that might be connected to the missing boaters.The find of the tackle bag allowed searchers an area to focus their search. Powers said some of the larger boats that left out of Mayport asked if they should stay through the night Monday, and he called for volunteers with boats capable of safely helping offshore to join the search on Tuesday when the weather should be even better than Monday.Coast Guard crews will be searching overnight. Volunteers who have boats capable of searching between 30 and 60 miles offshore safely are asked to meet at the Mayport boat ramp at 7 a.m. Tuesday. For those who dont have a boat but still want to help, donations can be made at JFRD.com. We are looking for volunteeers tomorrow who have boats capable of searching between 30-60 miles offshore safely..meet at Mayport boat ramp at 7 am....bring binoculars and SAT phone if you have them.If you dont have a boat and want to help...donations at https://t.co/b1jIXB0TtN-- MyJFRD JFRDJAX August 19, 2019 CHECKLIST: 6 items boaters should not leave shore withoutWATCH: Survivor recounts 72-hours lost at sea in 2010McCluney and Walker were last seen fishing in McCluneys 24-foot center console boat. The Coast Guard was alerted at 8 p.m. Friday when they never returned to shore and werent receiving texts or calls.A Navy plane Customs and Border Protections Air and Marine Operations aircraft joined the search Monday morning. A Coast Guard HC-130 aircraft from Clearwater was also searching. There were at least three other aircraft searching Monday. Aiding in the search were dozens of off-duty firefighters who donated their time and their boats to look for their brothers. Flagler County firefighters on boats left Ponce Inlet Monday morning.Dozens of boaters and fishermen volunteers also joined the search.Someone needs help, so we are trying to go out there and see what we can do, volunteer Joe Larsen said. If I am broke down or capsized, I want everybody to come look for me. Thats why I am doing it.Although the boaters launched Friday morning from Port Canaveral, the current could have pushed these boaters north into the waters off Jacksonvilles shores, so firefighters and others are combing the beaches of North Florida and spent much of Sunday in private boats off the coast of Northeast Florida. If theyre in the Gulf Stream, their drift becomes faster and so that extends out the amount of locations to where they could be, said Capt. Jim Suber. RELATED: Gulf Stream makes missing boater search difficultSuber said with bad weather, theres a chance the boat could have been capsized.That white bottom of a boat is the best thing to stay with the boat hopefully that gives a better idea, he said. If they got separated from their boat, they hopefully had life jackets on or coolers and stuff.McCluneys brother, Kevin, said this outing had sentimental value.My father passed away a month ago, leaving behind the boat. My brother wanted to take it out one last final quick fishing trip, Kevin McCluney said. JFRD members coordinated a search along with the Coast Guard. They were instructed to search about 15 miles off the shore of St. Augustine. Interim Director Fire Chief Keith Powers said firefighters in Jacksonville will continue the search until their fellow firefighters are found. Firefighters have a unique bond. Its a 24 on 48 off schedule. We live together for a third of our life in those fire stations. We eat together, we laugh together and when something bad is going on, we cry together. When word got out the entire department we had numerous departments theyre all offering service, its a unique bond and its shared throughout the country, Powers said. RELATED STORY: Coast Guard searches for missing boatersRandy Wyse, president of the Jacksonville Association of Firefighters, said if anyone can get through this and make it out OK, its McCluney.Thats what we do. When firefighters are in a bad situation, they figure a way out of that. So, with Brians experience in the fire service and military experience, hes a very decorated veteran, if anyone can get out of this, he can. Hes always worked at some of the busiest places. Those are the kind of people always wanting to be in the action and go and do. So, he is a really fine individual, just a good family man. And we are praying for him, Wyse said.The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, the Navy and the Brevard County Sheriffs Office are also helping with the search.Wyse and the Jacksonville Fire Rescue Department say they will not rest until McCluney is found. Theres 1,600 people up here in Jacksonville praying for a good outcome and doing everything we can to help in the search and help support the family. Weve had firefighters from his crew 31 down there with the family since yesterday Saturday morning, Wyse said.McCluney is not just a firefighter but also a Navy veteran and has been married to his high school sweetheart for 15 years. They have two children, ages 6 and 8.Hes a decorated combat veteran, deployed to Iraq twice, participated in the battle of Fallujah, Navy corpsman. Excellent survival training. Theyre both firefighters. Theyre the most capable people I can imagine. Given the circumstances, they have everything going for them, Kevin McCluney said. Anyone with information about the boaters or who can help in the search is asked to call the Coast Guard at 904-714-7565.

Survivor recounts 3 days lost at sea in 2010
08/19/2019 8:19pm

The search for two firefighters stranded at sea brought back vivid memories for one man whose fishing trip nine years ago turned into a fight to survive.John Nevarez his brother, Elias and his wife, Rebecca, were found by the Coast Guard in the Atlantic Ocean, holding onto a cooler, after three days of drifting at sea.In May 2010, Nevarez, his brother and wife left from a boat ramp in Mayport to go on a fishing trip. Within hours of their departure, a storm came, waves overtook their boat and they were stranded in the middle of the ocean for 72 hours.The wave went right through us, Nevarez said.Their training in the Navy kicked in and they clung to a cooler, rationing food.The cooler was our life. It had all of our drinks in it. It had everything we were going to use to survive, Nevarez said. Its all we had.With the cooler, the three swam to the shipping lane routes. Since Nevarezs brother was wearing a bright orange shirt, they hoped a boat would see them. Vessel Tenth Frame found them.Seeing the boat show up out of nowhere, like, coming down the shipping lane, getting in front of it, watching it stop, turn off his engines, knowing that he saw us -- thats the only thing I remember, Nevarez said.The three were then picked up by the Coast Guard and their boat was found at Fernandina Beach three days after they were rescued. Despite that experience, Naverez said he and his wife went back out for a boating trip in the ocean. RELATED: Missing boaters wife posts miracles happen hours before tackle bag foundBY THE NUMBERS: Searching for firefighters lost at seaCHECKLIST: 6 items boaters should not leave shore withoutNaverez said his thoughts are with Brian McCluney, a firefighter and paramedic with the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department, and Justin Walker, a firefighter from Virginia, as he knows firsthand what they may be going through.Just goosebumps all over my body remembering all the things we had to do to survive, Nevarez said. If they have the will, they will buy the time that it takes us to find them.Nevarezs plea for the two firefighters currently stranded at sea is: Dont give up. Dont ever give up. Nevarez said he believes McCluney and Walker will survive.

2 charged with murder in shooting of arcade security guard
08/19/2019 12:35pm

Two men have been charged with murder in the shooting death of an adult arcade security guard last week, the Jacksonville Sheriffs Office announced Monday.Anthony Ansley, 23, and Dewayne Flowers Jr., 30, have also been charged with armed robbery in the case.The security guard, whom police are not naming because of Marsys Law, was shot and killed during the robbery at High Score Arcade on North Edgewood Avenue just after 2 a.m. Aug. 12. Police said the security guard was 37 years old.Police said Ansley shot the guard and took his weapon during the robbery. They said Ansley was found Wednesday and arrested, and Flowers was caught three days later. They said Flowers was identified by a distinguishing tattoo on his neck and other information from the investigation.Police said Ansley confessed to the shooting and robbery. WATCH: Arrests made in shooting death of adult arcade security guardNews4Jax went to an address listed for Flowers, where a neighbor said she knew him in passing and had just seen him last week.Its shocking to me. It really is shocking because you really dont know people who live by you, said the neighbor, who asked not to be identified for her own protection. But at the same time, you dont know people and you hear stuff and you dont know if its true or not.According to the Sheriffs Office, the men have also been charged with the Aug. 8 armed robbery of a Gamestop on Normandy Boulevard and the July 21 armed robbery of the Normandy Arcade on Normandy Boulevard.News4Jax learned this was the fourth robbery of High Score this year and a person was killed just outside the arcade last September.Police thanked the community for coming forward with tips and choosing to get involved in solving the security guards killing.Together we can make a difference, the Sheriffs Office said.Flowers and Ansley are being held in the Duval County jail without bond, online jail records show.According to Duval County court records, Ansley was convicted of armed robbery in 2012 and pleaded guilty to charges of possession of a controlled substance in 2016 and 2018. Fourth homicide at adult arcade in 18 months Jacksonvilles businesses are not strangers to violence as a result of robbery attempts. A man was shot and killed May 2 during a robbery at the Dream Arcade on Edgewood Avenue. A robbery at the Lucky Charms Arcade on Mayport Road in January led to a kidnapping and crash in which an 84-year-old man died.Two security officers at arcades were involved in shootings last year. In December, a guard was shot during the robbery of the Cyber Spot Game Room on 103rd Street. In March 2018, a security guard shot and killed two robbers at the Spin City Sweepstakes Internet Cafe on Beach Boulevard.Crime is a primary reason the Jacksonville City Council voted earlier this year to close down all adult arcades by next February. Several arcade owners and one attorney told News4Jax there is going to be a legal challenge and request for an extension on the date set for these businesses to close.We have documented nearly 100 of these businesses operating in Jacksonville. The city shut down a dozen of them that did not have the proper permits and is investigating another 23 with questionable permits to operate.The High Score Arcade does have legal permits and is able to remain in business for another five months -- unless there is an extension.

He was last seen leaving the parking lot toward Cassatt Avenue, police said.Anyone with information is asked to call the Sheriffs Office at 904-630-0500 or Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS 8477.

Loved ones of firefighters stranded at sea flood beach with prayers
08/19/2019 8:51pm

Family and friends continued to hold on to hope on the third day of searching for two firefighters lost at sea. Loved ones gathered Monday evening at Mickers Landing in northern St. Johns County for a prayer and beach walk.They held hands and stood in a circle as they flooded the ocean and beach with prayers. Then the walked along the beach, looking for any clues offshore that might be linked to the missing boaters.On Day 3 of the search for Brian McCluney, a firefighter and paramedic with the Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department and Justin Walker, another firefighter from Virginia, the U.S. Coast Guard announced that crews had covered 46,800 miles of ocean.Theresa Scully works with McCluneys wife, Stephanie. She was among those who prayed and walked the beach Monday night. We want to say some prayers, offer up some prayers out into the ocean for Brian and Justin and then just walk the beach again and see if we can see any debris or at least send our spirit out there so that they know that were here pulling for them, Scully said.McCluney and Walker never returned from their fishing trip in Port Canaveral on Friday. Since then, dozens of boats, six aircraft and more than 100 volunteers and surrounding agencies have joined in the search for them.Were still positive about everything, were going to be able to find them, said Mari Mullan, a friend of McCluneys wife. McCluneys wife posted on her Facebook page about 2 p.m. Monday that her husbands tackle bag had been found 50 nautical miles off the coast of St. Augustine, and she confirmed it was his. She said she believes its a breadcrumb he threw overboard, hinting where to find them. Im just so convicted that theyre out there still and that tackle bag is just the first sign that were going to start seeing from them and I really do hope that we can bring them home safely, Scully said. Supporters of the McCluney family who gathered at Micklers Landing didnt find any debris during the beach walk, but with the power of prayer, they believe the two men will be found soon.
