Va. boater presumed dead
"He is presumed drowned," said Sgt. Art Windemuth, a spokesman for the Maryland Natural Resources Police.
He identified the missing man as Daniel Ray Myers, of King George, Va. Rescue workers believe he was not wearing a life jacket, Windemuth said.
Myers and Glenn Martin Dawson, 52, also of King George, were on a home-made vessel about 20-feet long, propelled by a 150 hp outboard motor. The two men had been testing a piece of pile-driving equipment and were trying to cross from Maryland to Virginia when the boat took on water. Dawson swam to the Virginia side and summoned help.
