Body of Missing Boater Found in Talbot County

Posted: Updated:
EASTON, Md. (AP/WBOC) - Officials say they've found the body of a 76-year-old man who went out rowing on the Eastern Shore and didn't come back.

The body of Alan Meyers of St. Michaels was found around 6:15 a.m. Sunday in Broad Creek in Talbot County.

Maryland Natural Resources Police began searching for Meyers after he went rowing on Saturday morning and did not return. Officials say they used patrol boats, K-9s, divers and sonar equipment to assist in the search that lasted for most of the day Saturday. The search was halted overnight but resumed Sunday morning, successfully finding Meyers' body. Officials say Meyers was not wearing a life jacket when his body was found.

 An NRP spokesperson said the state's medical examiner will perform an autopsy to determine his cause of death.
