Coast Guard Searching for Operator of Adrift Vessel

Thursday, September 07, 2006
The Coast Guard, Baltimore City Marine Police, and the Maryland Natural Resources Police are currently searching the waters of the Patpasco River in the vicinity of the Ferry Bar Channel for signs of a person in the water, after a 30-foot vessel was found floating adrift with no one aboard. The tug boat Cape Romain, initially spotted the vessel this morning and notified the Coast Guard. An initial search of the vessel was conducted and Coast Guard personnel found personal items and fresh paint on the vessel windows. In addition, a small diesel flue leak was evident. A 41-foot utility boat from Coast Guard Station Curtis Bay towed the derelict vessel to the Fairfield Auto Terminal to free any potential hazard to navigation. The search is a precautionary measure, and local authorities are attempting to contact the last known owner of the vessel.
