Dive team to search port waters for body

A dive team was scheduled to search the water around the docks at the Port of Brookings-Harbor this morning (Sept. 25) for the body of a man reported missing on Sunday.

“The U.S. Coast Guard used their boats to search the water around 11:30 p.m. Sunday after a citizen reported hearing a splash in the water near the docks,” Bishop said. “They found a size 14 shoe that does match the size of the missing person.”

He was referring to Wade Smith, 23, former Brookings Harbor High School student, who was last seen earlier that night and may have been drinking, Bishop said.

“We don’t know if it’s him,” the sheriff said. “If it was a person, there’s no telling where the body might be. The tide could have swept it out to sea by now, but we’re checking to be sure.”
