MOBILE, Ala. (AP) -- A 10-year-old boy who was traveling with four others on a hunting trip around the Mobile-Tensaw Delta remained missing for a second night, authorities said Monday.

Authorities on Monday found two men and two boys who were also lost in the Oak Leaf Bayou area in Baldwin County, Coast Guard officials said.

One of the rescued men, Tony Poole, is the father of 10-year-old Christian Poole, who still is missing.

Search and rescue officials and volunteers from Daphne, Mobile, North Baldwin and Bon Secour searched for Christian through Monday night.

"We're not going to quit 'til we find this boy," said Lt. Ron Emrich of the Mobile County Sheriff's Department.

The hunting group drove an 18-foot aluminum boat about 14 miles north to Oak Leaf Landing just before noon on Sunday. The group apparently left the boat and got lost while hunting for squirrel in the delta, said Ken Eslava, spokesman for Daphne Search and Rescue.

Eslava said Poole was being treated for hypothermia. The other man, Tommy Stokes, and his two sons were in good condition.
