DAWSON COUNTY, Ga. -

Dawson County authorities are searching for two missing young men who disappeared after leaving for an early morning fishing trip.

Mason Cox and David Wood were last seen Thursday in the area of Frederick's Cove. Officials say the two best friends were believed to be fishing behind Wood's house on Lake Lanier. Their fishing poles were returned, but the men have not been seen or heard from since.

The men's mothers believe that a friend may have picked them up, as their cars are still at Wood's house. Dawsonville deputies said surveillance footage shows a vehicle coming in and out of the neighborhood at the same time that the boys vanished.

Authorities are not considering their disappearance to be suspicious at this time, but they are asking for the public's help in locating the pair.

The Dawson County Sheriff's Office has conducted a search for the men, but has not turned up anything.

If you have seen Mason or David you are asked to call Investigator Murphy at 706-344-3636 or your local sheriff.
