I heard traffic about the unoccupied sailing boat last evening on Marine channels 16 and 22. I figured something must be up when I heard MSP helo on the same channels and increased activity on 39.22. Didn't copy the USCG helo.
This AM's Annapolis paper had this on the front page

As Merill was an accomplished sailor you have to think about some sort of illness, etc.

1029am today (Sunday) local heard on 345.000 CG 6585 HH-65B CGAS Atlantic City A/A with
CG 1502 HC-130H CGAS Elizabeth City talking about search box area.
Also mentioned using freq 172.025.
This could be part of that search...

update 1:30 pm..CG 6585 is breaking off search telling CG 1502 345.000 he is probably done and CAP may
take over low alttitude search.Maybe 172.025 is CAP freq? (Civil Air Patrol)
CG Pilot mentioned 72 year old missing as former NATO guy so no doubt search is related to above post by Baydog.
