Search continues for missing man in Narragansett Bay

Providence, R.I. – An air and sea search continues today for a 25-year-old man who went missing in Narragansett Bay while fishing off of rocks yesterday afternoon.

Stacey Wallace, with the U.S. Coast Guard, says the search area stretches from Narragansett to Newport.

"It's all of Narragansett Beach up to Bonnet Shores and then over to Brenton Point here at Newport," Wallace says.

The search began yesterday after four people fell into the water around Hazard Rock near Narragansett Pier. Every person except for the missing man was rescued by the Narragansett Fire Department. Two people were hospitalized.
