Volunteers needed to help search for missing fisherman

By News Staff


The fisherman missing off the coast of Little Compton is a long-time employee of Twin River.

The company is now asking volunteers to aid in the search, which is wrapping up its 5th day.

Adam Perry, Sr., of Lincoln, has not been seen since his boat capsized last Thursday off of Sakonnet Point. 

Two other men on the boat were rescued. 

The Coast Guard has called off the search for Perry, but volunteer organization New England Search and Rescue is continuing the search efforts until at least Saturday. 

They are planning to keep looking until Saturday.

Volunteers are asked to meet at 9:00 am at Sakonnet Point Marina at 11 Bluff Head Ave, Little Compton, RI. 

Volunteers can sign in with the rescue team at the command center located at the marina, and are encouraged to bring binoculars or telescope possible. Proper attire to be prepared for tough terrain such as water, rocks, and sand, is encouraged.
