The Diaz family says there were strong winds and currents, so Spencer could have gotten as far as the shores of St. Petersburg by now.

While they’ve been unsuccessful in finding Spencer, they are holding on to hope that he’s still safe out there, especially since he was wearing a life jacket and is a great swimmer.

He is also microchipped and wearing a collar with ID tags.

The family says anyone who is going out on their boat in the area to keep their eyes out for him.
