Update: Divers Back in Fort Pond on ‘Recovery Operation’ for Missing Man

Dive teams have resumed their search Monday morning for a man who went missing in Fort Pond in Montauk Sunday evening. East Hampton Town Police Chief Michael Sarlo called it a recovery operation.

Chief Sarlo explained that police received a call about a swimmer in distress at 7:54 p.m. Responding units determined that four people in a row boat had entered the water to retrieve an oar. The boat drifted away from them and “one of the four became distressed and disappeared under the water,” he said.
