    The U.S. Coast Guard is searching for a man who went paddle boarding in the area of Fort Pierce and never returned.

    William Morlock, 58, was last seen by his sister Friday at the house they share, preparing the paddle board for use.

    Morlock's sister notified the Coast Guard on Sunday morning after her brother didn't return from paddle boarding.

    The Coast Guard said boat and airplane crews have been searching for Morlock since Sunday.

    A massive effort to rescue two 14-year-old boys lost at sea continued off of the east coast of Florida for the fourth night, authorities said.

    Perry Cohen and Austin Stephanos were supposed to go fishing Friday in the safety of the Jupiter Inlet off of Palm Beach County. But they may have ran into a thunderstorm, after they said on Snapchat that they were going to the Bahamas. 

    U.S. Coast Guard Capt. Mark Fedor said Monday afternoon that if alive the boys could probably survive four to five days at the current temperature. The rescue team -- which includes the U.S. Navy and Customs and Border Protection -- was "aggressively" searching for them but they faced challenges, he said.

    The Coast Guard 7th District chief of enforcement also said that "when a person is in the water, you are basically looking for the chest up, so it’s a relatively small object you’re looking for." Coast Guard Lt. Commander Gabe Somma added that there was "an awfully strong current." 

    The goal by midnight was to have scanned about 27,000 square nautical miles -- an area about the size of West Virginia. As of Monday afternoon, the Coast Guard reported the team had covered about 26,000 square nautical miles -- an area about the size of the state of Indiana.

    "I have a 13-year-old and a 14-year-old son at home, so this resonates obviously with me," Fedor said. "And I can empathize with the families that are involved."

    The boys' families were optimistic. Perry's stepfather, Nick Korniloss, said the boys are strong swimmers, avid boaters and survivors. Austin's aunt Norieta Stephanos said he is resilient and fearless. They were asking the public for help.

    "Anyone that is located near the beaches from Jupiter, Florida, up the coast to the beaches of Georgia, please go out and walk your beaches," Perry's mom Pamela Cohen said on Instagram Monday. They hoped debris could serve as clues.

    SEARCH AND RESCUE TEAM The U.S. Navy joined the effort with the U.S.S. Carney. The Coast Guard's search team included a HC-130 airplane, an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter, an HC-144 Ocean Sentry aircraft, an MH-60 helicopter and five cutters. The Customs and Border Protection joined in Saturday. The Florida Fish and Wildlife and the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office were also involved.

    The boys' neighbor Joe Namath, the NFL Hall of Famer, searched on the beach, as reporters followed. He also helped their families raise a $100,000 reward. There were also volunteers setting up GoFundMe accounts including one to help fund search efforts by a Jupiter police officer and a pilot.

    On Sunday night, about 200 met to pray for a miracle at the gym of the Jupiter Christian School, where Austin was expected to go to school in the fall.

    Capsized boat found

    The boys' capsized 19-foot single-engine center console vessel turned up Sunday. The powerful Gulf Stream current pushed it north about 67 nautical miles off the Ponce de Leon Inlet in Volusia County.

    There was one life jacket in the hull. Fedor said they weren't sure how many were in the boat to begin with.

    "We are hopeful that they both have life jackets," Fedor said.

    Since the engine cover and a white Yeti cooler were also missing from the vessel, relatives believe the boys could be using them to stay alive.

    "We believe the boys made floating devices with the items missing from the boat," a family flyer said. The image was circulating on social media under the hash tag "Find Austin and Perry."

    A commercial fisherman and the manager of Jib Yacht Club and Marina worried they may have been the last to see the boys. Joey Krizka told The Palm Beach Post that they only had $109 to pay for the $122 bill, which included 28 gallons of gas. Krizka told them they could pay him later, because he saw them regularly.

    Jim Dulin said he is a commercial fisherman with 20 years of experience. He told The Palm Beach Post that he was heading toward the Jupiter Inlet Friday afternoon to turn away from a thunderstorm, when he saw two "crazy" kids going toward it.

    "The storm was really black," Dulin said. "The temperature dropped and you could tell it was going to be a really mean one."

    Effort to find 2 teens at sea

    The parents of a child they claim was sexually assaulted by a Cooper City little league coach are speaking about their son's pain and the fear that his former coach will be released from jail.

    The boy's family told Local 10 News reporter John Turchin that they want to make sure that doesn't happen. They hope that by speaking publicly, it will encourage other parents to talk to their children who have come into contact with David Solomon, 47, over the years, to see if they were sexually abused.

    Solomon, who was a baseball coach at the Cooper City Optimist League, was arrested at his home Thursday and is being held without bond at the Broward County Jail on two counts of sexual abuse on a minor.

    "Since Thursday, our world has been turned upside down," the boy's father, who wished to remain anonymous, said.

    The mother and father are lost in their grief, agonizing over what happened to their son.

    'To find out what really happened to him -- It broke my heart," the boy's mother said.

    The couple said they are living every parent's nightmare after learning that their son's coach, someone who had gained their trust and loyalty, allegedly preyed upon their son.

    "His innocence was taken from him. He's just an 11-year-old boy," the mother said.

    According to detectives, the sexual assault began in early April during a team sleepover at the coach's home in Cooper City.

    But the boy told detectives that most of the sex acts happened in the coach's car. He said Solomon claimed that if he told anyone, it would violate the "bro code."

    "I guess looking back on it now, there were signs that were there -- just nobody saw them," the father said.

    The father said those signs included text messages.

    "You can see that he was always the one offering to pick him up and take him home by himself," he said.

    What frightens the mother and father is that Solomon was cleared of similar allegations in 2000 when he was arrested and charged with molesting two boys who played on the baseball team he coached in Hialeah Gardens.

    "He got away with it once -- what's to say he can't do it again?" the mother said.

    The charges were later dropped when one of the boys recanted his claim.

    "Justice prevailed I guess," Solomon told Local 10 News in 2000. "Kids know what to say, when to say it to get them out of whatever they need to get out of, and you just have to look out for No. 1."

    While Solomon is jailed and facing two counts of sexual assault, the victim's mother said she hopes Solomon will forever remain within the walls that now confine him.

    "A coach is supposed to be someone to guide you, that you look up to, that you admire --and here he is -- he's betraying all of our trust," she said.

    Local 10 News learned that a second victim has come forward and additional charges are expected. But like this mother and father, detectives are concerned there are more victims.

    Anyone who believes their child was a victim of Solomon is asked to call the Broward Sheriff's Office.

    A suspect involved in a police standoff in Miami was taken into custody Tuesday morning.

    Police had their guns drawn at the suspect inside a car stopped in the driveway of a home near Biscayne Boulevard and Northeast 62nd Street.

    The man eventually stepped out of the car with his hands up and appeared to surrender, lying on the ground for police to handcuff him.

    He was shirtless, wearing khaki pants and appeared to be smoking a cigarette. He was sitting on a street curb being attended by paramedics.

    It is not known what led to the standoff, but a large police presence is in the area.

    The annual two-day sport spiny lobster season begins at 12:01 a.m. Wednesday and runs through Thursday evening. 

    The Florida Fish and Wildlife  Conservation Commission and area law enforcement will be monitoring divers and snorkelers to make sure no rules are broken.

    In Monroe County, each person can catch up to six lobsters per day. Elsewhere in the state, up to 12 lobsters can be harvested daily. A new rule for the 2015 season will allow each person to capture an additional lobster during the two-day season if they harvest ten or more lionfish. The venomous fish are not native to South Florida waters and are an invasive species, but are edible to humans. All lobsters must be measured in the water and have a carapace of at least 3 inches to be captured. No egg-bearing female lobsters may be removed from the water. Divers are not allowed to harvest lobsters within the borders of John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park during the mini-season. Additionally, is illegal to ever capture lobsters in Everglades National Park, Dry Tortugas National Park, no-take areas of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary, and in the Biscayne Bay/Card Sound Lobster Sanctuary. Night diving is not allowed during the sport season in Monroe County. 

    For more information about spiny lobster harvesting in Florida, click here. 

    The mini-season ends Thursday at 11:59 p.m.

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump once called a lawyer who requested a break from a 2011 deposition to pump breast milk "disgusting" before ending his testimony and leaving the room.

    "He got up, his face got red, he shook his finger at me and he screamed, 'You're disgusting, you're disgusting,' and he ran out of there," Beck told CNN's Alisyn Camerota on Wednesday morning, calling it "an absolute meltdown."

    The incident was described in a letter from Jared Beck, Elizabeth's co-counsel and husband, obtained by CNN and first reported Tuesday by the New York Times.

    Trump's attorney Allen Garten, who was present for the deposition, does not dispute that Trump called Beck "disgusting."

    Trump slammed Beck's interview in a tweet to CNN Politics on Wednesday morning:

    "Lawyer Elizabeth Beck did a terrible job against me, she lost (I even got legal fees). I loved beating her,she was easy," he tweeted.

    Alan Garten, executive vice president and general counsel at The Trump Organization, did not dispute the remark, but said Trump called Beck "disgusting" because she was about to use her breast pump in the middle of the deposition room.

    "She was disgusting," Garten said in a phone interview with CNN. "She was attempting to breast feed -- to pump in the middle of a deposition, in a deposition room with five lawyers and was not excusing herself."

    Garten said Beck started to assemble the pump in the deposition room and "started to move the breast pump toward her breast."

    Garten insisted that Trump and his legal team left the room "to give her privacy" and called Beck's behavior unprofessional.

    And he claimed Beck orchestrated the stunt because "she ran out of questions and she didn't know what to do."

    "This is not about breastfeeding ... it's just not," Garten insisted.

    Beck painted a very different picture, saying Trump was the one whose behavior was "unprofessional" and displayed a "lack of self-control."

    Beck insisted that the breast-pumping break was set to coincide with a pre-scheduled lunch break at 12:30, but that Trump decided at the last minute he did not want a break.

    Garten disputed that, insisting the only pre-scheduled break was one set for 3 p.m. for Beck to pump breast milk privately in a separate room.

    "What kind of a leader of the United States would that be? Is he going to behave that way when he's negotiating treaties with China or Russia?" she said.

    Trump's testimony stemmed from a lawsuit over a failed real estate project in Florida in which the Becks represented clients who claimed they lost tens of thousands of dollars each.

    The breast-pumping incident wasn't the only time Trump insulted the attorney during the deposition, according to transcripts obtained by the New York Times.

    "Do you even know what you're doing?" he asked her at one point, according to the Times.

    In the end, the Becks lost one of their cases against Mr. Trump and are appealing, the newspaper said.

    News of the "disgusting" remark came on the heels of another rhetorical controversy swirling around Trump.

    Facing questions about a decades-old rape accusation against Trump, one of his top aides and attorneys Michael Cohen told the Daily Beast that legally "you cannot rape your spouse." In fact, marital rape has been illegal in all 50 states for more than two decades.

    Cohen apologized Tuesday for the remark, calling his comments "inarticulate" but insisting that he had been enraged by the reporter's "gall" to ask a question about the accusation.

    The rape claim stems from an accusation Trump's then-wife Ivana Trump leveled at her husband during divorce proceedings in the early 1990s, an allegation she walked back Tuesday.

    While law enforcement officers may or may not have a certain affinity for donuts, there's one thing they don't like when it comes to those delightfully tasty treats.

    And that's when someone actually performs donuts on the jailhouse lawn.

    Perhaps Michael Lee Roberts was unaware of that simple truth when he was caught on camera performing automobile stunts on the grass outside the Hernando County Detention Center in Brooksville.

    The saga began Monday evening after Roberts refused to move his red SUV from the sidewalk in front of the main entry of the detention center.

    After the fourth warning, Roberts got into his vehicle and proceeded to drive through the center's landscaping and on to the lawn.

    Roberts continued to drive on the grass until he eventually hit a flag pole, stopping the car's movement.

    Deputies ordered Roberts out of the vehicle where he was taken to the ground and handcuffed.

    Roberts was booked in the same jail on charges of criminal mischief and two counts of resisting an officer without violence.

    The owner of a horse stable is facing charges after serving minors alcohol before giving them a riding lesson in Davie, police said.

    Gina Michelle Warren, 27, was arrested July 20 on charges of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and tampering with evidence.

    According to an arrest report, police responded to Tree Tops Park in Davie after a girl was thrown from a horse.

    Officers said the girl was thrown from her horse as it collided with a tree and was bleeding from her nose, ears and mouth. They said the horse had several scrapes and abrasions around his right eye area.

    According to the report, Warren told officers that she owns G.T. Stables and was responsible for four girls between the ages of 13 and 16 years old who were at the park.

    As Warren and two of the girls left to put the horses into a trailer, police said they received a phone call from a park employee claiming that Warren had given the girls Mike's Hard Lemonade.

    Police said they observed several open and unopened bottles in a nearby trash can, and said Warren claimed that the bottles were left by someone on the picnic table so she threw them out.

    While questioning each of the three girls individually, each admitted to drinking alcohol provided by Warren, and one girl claimed that she had provided them alcohol on more than one occasion, police said.

    Officers said Warren told the girls they could have the alcoholic beverage, but "needed to drink water to make sure they don't get a headache." They said after the accident, Warren told the girls not to tell police about the alcohol.

    Warren was taken into custody.

    Police said Warren refused to accept responsibility, telling a detective at the Davie Police Department that all the girls "were lying because they were scared."

    The condition and identity of the teen who was injured has not been released.

    The Broward Sheriff's Office is investigating after two boys were struck Tuesday evening while riding a bicycle.

    BSO spokeswoman Gina Carter said the children, ages 10 and 11, were riding on a bike along Northeast 26th Street when they were struck by a black Camaro about 6:30 p.m.

    "There was a car parked on the swale that was blocking the driver's view," Carter told Local 10 News. "He didn't see the kids as they were riding out."

    Carter said one of the boys was standing on the bicycle's back pegs.

    "Neither of them were wearing helmets at the time," she said.

    The 10-year-old boy was taken by ground to Broward Health North. The 11-year-old boy was taken by helicopter to Broward Health Medical Center in Fort Lauderdale.

    Latasha Barkley, an aunt of one of the two boys, said her nephew had a broken leg and busted lip.

    "It looks like he's going to be fine because he's breathing OK," Barkley said.

    Carter said the driver of the Camaro stayed at the scene.

    Mullah Omar, the reclusive supreme leader of the Afghan Taliban, has died, according to the BBC, the Wall Street Journal and a Pakistani newspaper, citing Afghan officials.

    The Taliban has not commented on the reports.

    The leader died two to three years ago, Afghan government and intelligence sources told the BBC. There have been previous reports of Mullah Omar's death, but this is the first to be confirmed by top Afghan sources.

    Reuters reports that an Afghan government official said a press conference had been called on the subject.

    The official, who declined to be named because he was not authorized to give statements to the press, did not provide further details.

    Mullah Omar led the Taliban to victory over rival Afghan militias in the civil war that followed the withdrawal of Soviet troops.

    His alliance with al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden prompted the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 in the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington.

    Mullah Omar has since been in hiding with a $10 million bounty on his head from the U.S.

    The latest statement purported to be from Mullah Omar, from mid-July, expressed support for peace talks between the Taliban and the Afghan government.

    However, the message was in the form of a text published on a Taliban website, rather than an audio or video recording - fuelling rumors that the leader was dead or incapacitated.

    The massive effort to find two teens from Palm Beach County who disappeared at sea will continue Tuesday night off the coast of South Carolina, the U.S. Coast Guard said.

    Perry Cohen and Austin Stephanos -- both 14-year-old avid fishers who are neighbors and best friends -- could survive in the water for four to five days, Capt. Mark Fedor said Monday. Tuesday was the fifth night.

    "As each hour goes by, the situation becomes dire," Fedor said in a statement.

    The U.S. Cost Guard announced Tuesday night that the search-and-rescue mission had scanned nearly 31,000 square nautical miles from Jupiter to Charleston, South Carolina.

    Although desperation was kicking in, the families' hope was still alive.

    "My gorgeous boy, hold on tight," Perry's mom, Pamela Telvi Cohen, said on Instagram. "The entire world is praying for you and Austin ... we will find you."

    After the boys' 19-foot capsized boat turned up Sunday off of the coast of Daytona Beach, the family learned that there was a possibility that they were using life jackets and a white Yeti cooler to stay alive. The black engine cover was also missing.

    "We know that they are doing everything that they possibly can to stay afloat," Cohen said.

    The family was asking volunteers to comb beaches and keep an eye on coastline debris in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. Government and private ships, boats, planes, helicopters and even a drone scattered off of the southeast coast, a relative said.

    There have been some false alarms. Tuesday there was fear when a boater reported spotting a similar cooler, but the U.S. Coast Guard later confirmed on Twitter that it was not the one that the boys had.

    The Coast Guard also warned that although the rescue team -- which includes the U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force and Customs and Border Protection -- was "aggressively" searching for them, there were challenges.

    "When a person is in the water, you are basically looking for the chest up, so it's a relatively small object you're looking for," Fedor said.

    Coast Guard Lt. Commander Gabe Somma added that there was "an awfully strong current."

    The day the boys went missing there were thunderstorms. A fisherman told The Palm Beach Post that as he was trying to get away from a mean storm, he saw two teens moving toward it. The boat, he said, fit the description.

    SEARCH-AND-RESCUE TEAM The U.S. Navy, U.S. Air Force, Customs and Border Protection, Flagler County Sheriff's Office and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are some of the agencies involved. The U.S. Coast Guard's assets include six cutters (Maria Bray, William Flores, Shrike, Yellowfin, Sawfish and James). Coast Guard small boats from stations Ponce de Leon Inlet and Port Canaveral were also searching. And on the air, HC-130 Hercules airplanes from stations Elizabeth City, North Carolina and Clearwater were also searching.

    There were prayer vigils Sunday and Monday in Palm Beach County. The Tequesta Police Department used Twitter to thank a large crowd for attending a vigil Monday night.

    There were more candlelight vigils planned for Tuesday and Wednesday night in Jupiter, Cocoa Beach, Stuart and Pompano Beach.

    Several psychics who specialize on cases of missing persons said the families needed to search south and not north as maritime logic indicates, Gossip Extra's Jose Lambiet reported.

    According to the report, a volunteer said a group spent the weekend in the Bahamas telling locals about the families' $100,000 reward.

    A man from Key West has been charged with knowingly attempting to use a weapon of mass destruction against a person or property within the United States, federal prosecutors said Tuesday.

    According to a criminal complaint, Harlem Suarez, 23, who is also known as Almlak Benitez, caught the attention of the FBI in April after posting extremist rhetoric and promoting the Islamic State group through posts on his Facebook page.

    One post read, "Stand up with us my brother. Stand up with the black flag and the AK with 10 mag, fight with us, be a gangster with us, kill our enemies and convert to Islam now in USA."

    The complaint said Suarez later told an FBI informant that he wanted to make a "timer bomb."

    READ: Full complaint

    The FBI said Suarez purchased items for the bomb, which contained galvanized nails. The bomb would be placed in a backpack and would be detonated by a cellphone, the complaint said.

    Investigators said Suarez planned to bury the bomb at a public beach in Key West and detonate it. He met with an informant Monday at a Homestead hotel and showed him the home-made bomb, the complaint said.

    "There is no room for failure when it comes to investigating the potential use of a weapon of mass destruction," FBI Special Agent George L. Piro said. "The FBI and our local, state and federal partners work around the clock to prevent such catastrophic weapons from being used against our citizens.  Even so, we ask the public to be vigilant and report suspicious activity to law enforcement."

    According to the complaint, Suarez told FBI informants that he was making an ISIS recruiting video before the attack.

    The script for the video, according to the complaint was: "I call to other brothers worldwide to create Caliphate in the Middle East. Destroy our enemies against us. Let live only who are our brothers and sisters. Send our mujahideen to a different soil with tanks, missiles grenades and other tactical needs. America soil is the past, we will destroy America and divide it in two. We will raise our black flag on top of your white house and any president on duty (cut head)."

    Suarez was arrested Monday, and the FBI took possession of the inert explosive device.

    The complaint said Suarez had planned other attacks before deciding on bombing a Key West beach, including a Fourth of July attack in South Beach or in Marathon.

    His neighbors told Local 10 News that Suarez was a quiet man who lived with his parents and didn't talk much.

    Jose Luna said he saw FBI agents inside his neighbor's apartment about 8 a.m. Monday.

    "It's incredible how close we were to him, and like nobody knew," Daniela Rodriguez said.

    Suarez was arraigned Tuesday at the federal courthouse in Miami.

    The war of words between businessman Donald Trump and former Texas Gov. Rick Perry reached the jungle gym on Wednesday, when Perry challenged Trump to a pull-up contest.

    "Let's get a pull-up bar out there and let's see who can do the most pull-ups," said Perry, once an Air Force captain, when asked by a reporter if he had any message for Trump.

    Perry, who governed Texas with a trademark swagger and bravado for 14 years, made the remark after a speech dedicated to Wall Street reform at the Yale Club in New York on Wednesday.

    Perry has emerged as one of the fiercest critics of Trump, who currently leads polling in the Republican field, even calling for the real estate mogul to drop out of the race.

    Trump has returned fire, questioning Perry's ability to secure the border as governor and saying that he doesn't have the intelligence required to for the presidency.

    Perry and his aides have needled Trump for what they see as a mismatch between his tough talk and his tony, cosmopolitan image. On Wednesday, Perry's senior strategist in Iowa, Bob Haus, used Twitter to note what Trump wore when he visited the Texas-Mexico border earlier this month.

    "This is what a Manhattan 'tough guy' wears to the southern border," Haus tweeted. "White golf shoes and a linen jacket."

    The Broward Sheriff's Office is searching for a teenager who snatched an iPad out of the hands of a 4-year-old boy in Tamarac.

    The robbery was reported just before 7 p.m. July 24 inside the Grace Salon.

    Deputies said the boy’s mother, who works at the salon, was watching cartoons on his iPad as he waited for her to finish her shift.

    "I was nervous and angry," Alejandro's mother told Local 10 News.

    Surveillance video shows a teenage boy pacing outside the salon before opening the front door and asking an employee if his mother was there.

    When the employee turned her head away to look, the teen snatched the iPad, which is owned by the salon, from the child.

    "We didn't know what to do," salon owner Grace Plata said. "We were running behind him."

    Witnesses said the thief is about 5 feet, 6 inches tall, with a thin build. His hair was shaved on the side with twists on top, and he was wearing a purple T-shirt with "INVS" written across the front. He was also wearing baggy beige shorts and black sandals with socks.

    raw video

    No one was injured in the robbery.

    On Wednesday, Olympic gold medalist Howard Davis Jr. donated a replacement iPad to the salon.

    Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Mark Copley at (954) 321-4270. Tips can be reported anonymously to Broward County Crime Stoppers at 954-793-TIPS.

    The Miami Dolphins training camp kicked off Thursday morning.

    This year, a special celebration is underway as the team hits its 50th anniversary.

    The Fins are competing in their 50th NFL season this year.

    Coach Joe Philbin said he still gets butterflies before practice.

    The practices are free and open to the public. Those wanting to attend need to request the tickets online.
