Missing "Kayaker" recovered ~Mannasquan Inlet~


The body of a Kayaker reported missing last week in the Point Pleasant Beach N.J. area was recovered about 1.5 miles northeast of Mannasquan Inlet after being reported by a transient boater.

The Point Pleasant Rescue Dive Team was requested by local authorities to search the jetties after the kayak was found approximately 9 miles offshore and found the entry point as reported.

I was up there this weekend and had the opportunity to dive with the team in the Mannasquan Inlet practicing training skills and equipment use. Before this dive the search had already been called off by the Coast Guard but standard operating procedure with the Dive Team is to treat every dive as a training\search operation…

The Asbury Park Press had the following story:
