Apparently kids took a kayak out on the bay to retrieve a ball. They could not get back in. Multiple fire boats from AA, Calvert and QA in the water searching. Windy rough water conditions, and the water is cold. USCG RHIB from Annapolis , NRP ground units, and Trooper 2 searching now for about an hour with negative results. The sad thing is E411 had a visual on the kayak waiting for boats to arrive, but lost sight.

USCG does not have H-53s. Could be a Navy Sea Stallion from a development squadron. HX-21 is currently testing CH-53Ks aka King Stallion.

Which "5" TG were they using, 8118 or 8276? And, was the CAP 123.100?
Marine Tac 5 is 8276. I know CAP was tasked from personal connections, but I did not hear them on the air. DNR has a command post set up somewhere. This is a high profile recovery, so expect a lot of resources thrown at it. CAP has VHF-FM radios in their aircraft that operate on their own discrete freqs, and they also have Marine and VTAC channels. I doubt they use 123.1 AM.

The body of the 8yo boy was recovered this afternoon about 2000' from where his mother's body was recovered earlier.
