Missing Boater Found On Plum Island

Search crews found boat tied up, man unharmed

plumislandCoast Guard and Connecticut police officers say a boater who went missing in Long Island Sound was found unharmed on Plum Island.

Rescuers launched a search for the 30-year-old man from Old Lyme Thursday night after he didn’t return when expected to Old Saybrook from Southold, N.Y. A friend told police the boater had only six gallons of gas left when he departed the Long Island town.

Search crews say they found the man’s 13-foot Boston Whaler after midnight tied up on Plum Island, which is home to a federal animal disease research center. They found the boater on the island a little later.


The man’s name and other details were not released.
