SALEM, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The United States Coast Guard is searching for a 22-year-old man that set sail off the coast of Salem. Officials say the boater has been missing since September 29, when he was spotted in the waters of Long Island, New York.
The USCG Northeast says Matthew Dennis of Colorado departed Salem on September 22, bound for Florida in a white 28-foot fiberglass sailboat.
On Dennis' YouTube channel called "Sail Away with Matthew Dennis," the most recent video (published on September 25) shows the sailor arriving to the Cape Cod Canal. In the video Dennis describes his journey through Cape Cod and how placid the waters were.
Anyone with information is asked to call the Coast Guard at 617-223-8555.
