Coast Guard Petty Officer 3rd Class Joshua Canup confirmed that the body was found by Hatteras Island Rescue at Frisco Beach in the Outer Banks. The man had no reported injuries.

Boats from the Coast Guard stations at Ocracoke and Hatteras and a helicopter from the Coast Guard station at Elizabeth City are taking part in the search. The Coast Guard, along with the Salisbury harbor master and police department, the Merrimack police department, the Newburyport police department, and local community continue to search for the second person. But while attempting to rescue him, the boat was struck by an eight- to 10-foot breaking wave and lost sight of the man. They said roughly 67 miles of track line was searched in a 14-square-mile area over 17 hours. One man was able to make it to a jetty.

He was reportedly wearing blue swimming trunks and did not have a life jacket.

A man was seen being walked off the jetty by a Salisbury firefighter after he got out of the water on the rocks about 6:30 p.m.

Salisbury police, firefighters and an ambulance were on the scene shortly after the emergency call came in.

The man who was rescued was described as being in his late 20s or early 30s and walking on his own power.

The Coast Guard held a first-light search Wednesday that was suspended just after 7 a.m.
