On October 2, a 55 year old male was caught in a rip current and pulled into the ocean off a Cape Hatteras National Seashore beach in Salvo. Chicamacomico Banks Water Rescue and the United States Coast Guard responded quickly, but were unable to locate the swimmer.
At 7:36 am this morning, a park visitor reported finding the body of the missing swimmer just south of Ramp 23 in the Salvo area. Outer Banks Group Superintendent David Hallac said, "We extend our thoughts and condolences to his family and friends."
