568

An overdue windsurfer has been found.  DNREC officials say the windsurfer went missing on the Rehoboth Bay Thursday evening from Towers Road Bayside.  He was located Friday morning at Bay City off Long Neck by DNREC officials.  The windsurfer was fully outfitted with needed safety equipment, but told officials that the sail disconnected from his board and couldn’t be reset and no one heard his whistle while he was on the water.  He floated for about 6 hours until he reached shore at Bay City.  State Police and Coast Guard, aviation and Dewey Beach Police helped with the search.
