WILMINGTON, N.C. — The body of a missing swimmer has been found off the North Carolina coast.
Tim Riley, deputy chief for Currituck Fire & EMS, tells local media outlets the body of the 30-year-old man was found shortly before 1 a.m. Friday in the Pine Island section of Corolla Beach.
The Currituck County Sheriff’s Office on Friday identified the man as Thaddeus Davis. He was a staff member at Bucknell University in Pennsylvania as well as an assistant high school football coach.
The U.S. Coast Guard says it got a 911 call Thursday about a man seen by his wife going underwater and not resurfacing. The Corolla Beach Rescue Lifeguard Service reported rip currents in the area at the time of the drowning.
