LONG BEACH TOWNSHIP – The report of a downed plane in the ocean off Long Beach Island on Thursday is viewed as a “false alarm” by the US Coast Guard.
The Coast Guard along with the Ocean County Sheriff’s Office, Long Beach Township Police and State Police rushed into search mode around 11:30 a.m. after the Ocean County expedition received a call.
The appellant said a glider with possibly up to three people on board crashed near 26th Street in Long Beach.
“The Coast Guard takes all reports of possible search and rescue events seriously until we have confirmed distress or no distress,” said Petty Officer 3rd Class Emily Velez at New Jersey 101.5 . Yesterday’s case was a suspected false alarm. “
Some of the agencies that initially responded left during the search, but the Coast Guard did not end their search until 5:37 p.m.
Velez said Coast Guard interviews determined that no one on the beach had seen any planes in the area. The FAA and airports in the region have had no reports of missing or late planes and no one has been reported missing.
âThe area was quickly and thoroughly searched by the coast guard and local partners without any sign of distress,â Velez said.
The Coast Guard deployed a helicopter and brought in boats from several stations in the area as part of the search.
Ocean County Sheriff Michael Mastronardy said county dispatchers, who are part of the sheriff’s office, passed on the information of a caller who gave his name.
âAs far as I know, there is nothing fraudulent about the call. The point is, the person reported what they thought they saw. If they believed it, then that’s okay. would be provided by the Coast Guard, âMastronardy said. âWe don’t want to discourage people from calling things they think they see.
Velez was not yet able to provide an estimate for the cost of Thursday’s research due to the new June 17 federal holiday seen on Friday.
