Missing Since 04/09/2005

Missing From Freeport, Texas

Classification Lost/Injured Missing

Sex Male

Race White

Date of Birth Used 07/27/1987 (33)

Age 17 years old

Clothing/Jewelry Description A brown leather jacket, blue jeans, flip-flops and a white shell choker necklace.

Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian male. Brown hair, brown eyes. Austin has a scar on his right shoulder, a scar on his left thigh and a scar on the side of his left hip. He goes by his initials, AJC.

They took a yellow Labrador Retriever dog, several 160-quart ice chests with white snap-on cushions, an orange life ring, a blue and red raft, and between three and six standard-sized orange life jackets on their boat. The men were expected to return the following day, but they did not and they have never been heard from again.

The men's boat was later found capsized in the ocean. It had a hairline crack in the bottom and officials believe the boat accidentally ran into something, possibly a log. A seat cushion and three life jackets were floating nearby. There was no sign of the men at the scene, and an extensive search turned up no trace of them.

Austin, Keller and Zimmerman are presumed lost at sea. All three are from Houston, Texas. Austin attended Dobie High School and was also homeschooled. He is described as an avid outdoorsman.
