NY Boater Located Safely in Westbrook, CT
July 10, 2012
The Suffolk Times reports that a Greenport, New York, boater turned up safely in Westbrook, Connecticut, after his family reported him missing when he failed to show up for work on Sunday, July 8. The Coast Guard launched rescue crews from Montauk and New London to search for Todd Feilage, 36, who had planned to take his 21’ boat across Long Island Sound. Marine units and police departments from Long Island communities also assisted in the search.
The search ended when Feilage called authorities on Monday to let them know he was safe. He had apparently suffered engine problems while crossing the Sound, but later fixed them and had arrived safely at Westbrook’s Pier 76 Marina.
