Coast Guard Recovers Body Off Cape Cod
June 28, 2011
The Coast Guard recovered the body of an East Falmouth man missing since June 21 from Popponessett Bay on Cape Cod Monday evening, according to an article on CapeCodOnline.com.
The Coast Guard received a call about the body shortly before 6 p.m. They sent a 41-foot boat to retrieve the body and bring it to Woods Hole. It was later confirmed the body was that of Daniel Andrade, a 21-year-old East Falmouth man who disappeared June 21 while operating a 17-foot Boston Whaler off Popponessett Beach in Mashpee.
After leaving Little River Boat Yard in Mashpee around 9 a.m. that day, Andrade did not show up to his reported destination — a dock on Popponesset Bay in New Seabury. His boat was later found off Popponensset Island with nobody on board. The Coast Guard suspended its nearly daylong search by air, land and sea in the early afternoon on June 22, but family members and the Mashpee police and firefighters continued the search.
