The body of a Salisbury man was found by the U.S. Coast Guard on Monday afternoon after his family reported him missing in the early morning when he didn’t return from a day trip to Westmoreland State Park in Montross, Va., on Sunday, Maryland Natural Resources Police reported.
According to police spokeswoman Candy Thomson, Douglas Romano, 51, was reported missing by his wife around 1 a.m. Monday.
“He left home around 9 a.m. Sunday and was expected back by 9 p.m.,” Thomson said. “His wife woke up around 1 a.m., realized he wasn’t home and called state police.”
Romano’s body was found off Cobb Island near Cobb Bar, Thomson said.
“A bar is like an underwater sandbar,” she said. “If you hit them, it can do a lot of damage. Investigators are on the scene and nothing appears to be amiss.”
