Authorities are searching for a missing man after two boats collided Friday night in Biscayne Bay.

He said 10 people were taken to a hospital, including an adult and child.

One person on the boat wasn't hospitalized.

"At this time, we don't know how the accident happened," Sanchez said.

He said the U.S. Coast Guard was the lead agency in the search.
