Updated 2 years ago

The Coast Guard is searching for a sailor who did not return home after a sailing trip on Casco Bay. The Coast Guard says 79-year-old Albert Kelsey departed from Strouds Point at about 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday and was headed to Mosiers Island and Bustins Island in Casco Bay. He was reported overdue by his wife at 10 p.m. A 25-foot response boat small from Station South Portland, a Jayhawk helicopter from Air Station Cape Cod, and a boat from the Maine Marine Patrol are searching. Coast Guard says he may have run aground because he was on the water at low tide.
