November 04, 1994|By From Staff Reports

Coast Guard officials were searching for a missing man yesterday after a tugboat and sailboat collided near Cove Point in Calvert County, knocking the boater into the Chesapeake Bay.

A state police helicopter was aiding the search late last night. The man, whose name wasn't available, went overboard about 8:30 p.m., said Petty Officer Joe Dye, a Coast Guard spokesman.

The sailboat Lady Pearl was damaged but remained afloat. The man's wife remained safely on board, Officer Dye said. No one on the tugboat was injured.
