The case of two boys who went missing at sea in Florida last July is raising complicated legal questions about the use of iPhones and information.

Perry Cohen and Austin Stephanos, both 14, headed out to sea for a fishing trip on a 19-foot boat, never to be seen again. The ship was found last month off the coast of Bermuda. The boys were not on board, but some of their belongings were — including a cell phone belonging to Stephanos.

The phone has been turned over to his parents, but Cohen's mom and dad want it to go to the authorities. 

Jamie Winterton, director of strategy at the Global Security Initiative at Arizona State University, joined host Alex Cohen with more.
