ST. GEORGE, Maine (AP) — Maine authorities are searching for a clammer who disappeared off the coast of St. George during the blizzard.
The man was reported missing around 11 p.m. Thursday.
The U.S. Coast Guard says the family of 35-year-old Paul Brenner said he had departed from the Long Cove Boat Ramp at 5 p.m. Thursday to clam on Clark Island.
The Coast Guard says Brenner was reported to be in a 16-foot skiff that matches the description of an unmanned skiff found near Long Cove on Thursday night.
