The bodies of both missing fishermen who lost after their boat after it capsized off of the San Mateo County coast  have been found.

One of the bodies was found Monday, and the second body was discovered Tuesday.

Coast Guard officials have not identified the fishermen. But NBC Bay Area spoke to their families after the men's' boat capsized on Sunday.

The families identified the men as Carl Deng and Ping Yau Tsang of San Francisco.

The men who died were not wearing life jackets and separated from two of their friends, who were wearing lifejackets, and made it safely to shore.  Coast guard officials said their 23-foot fishing boat capsized a mile of the coast about 5:30 a.m. south of Half Moon Bay. A big wave hit the boat and caused it to capsized. The Coast Guard didn't get word about the missing fishermen until about six hours later.
