The Coast Guard came to the aid of a boater whose 19-foot boat ran aground on a sandbar off Cape May this weekend.

A helicopter crew started searching for the man around 5 p.m. Saturday, after his son told Coast Guard watchstanders his father was overdue from a short trip. The son said his father had departed from the Corson’s Inlet State Park boat ramp in Cape May County but didn’t reach his destination, which was two miles away.

An already in-flight crew aboard an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter from Coast Guard Air Station Atlantic City was sent to search for the man, and he was soon located. The man, who was not injured, was able to signal the crew with a flashing light.

The man’s name was not released.
