Search resumes for Md. man missing after sailboat sinks

ANNAPOLIS —  Officials are searching for a man missing after a 17-foot sailboat sank in the Chesapeake Bay near the Bay Bridge.

Maryland Natural Resources Police spokeswoman Candy Thomson says the boat ran into trouble around noon on Sunday. She says it sank so fast that the two adults and four children on board didn’t have time to put on life jackets. Another boater pulled one man and four children from the water, but an adult man remains missing.

Officials returned to the water on Monday to search for the man, identified as Adrian Perez of Upper Marlboro.
