The Coast Guard rescued three mariners Sunday afternoon from a boat that was taking on water in Moriches Bay, authorities said.

Neither the Coast Guard, nor the Portland Fire Department believe there is anyone missing at this time.

The Coast Guard in Wilmington received a report at about 8 a.m. that a 33-foot boat was taking on water with five people aboard approximately 15 miles southeast of Carolina Beach.

Once on scene, they located the missing swimmer on top of the rocks.


With four people on the boat, the crew contacted Coast Guard Sector New York who launched a Response Boat-small (RBS) from Coast Guard Station Sandy Hook. One was using a stand-up paddleboard, the other was a kayaker who had said he had capsized, according to the fire department.

The body hasn't been identified, but the Coast Guard ended the search for the man on Saturday.

The Coast Guard says the children drifted away from the shore off Ocean View Beach on Friday.
