The U.S. Coast Guard is searching for a New Jersey fisherman that disappeared from an Ocean City beach on Saturday. Sam DeLarso reportedly arrived at West Newcastle Avenue around 5 o'clock in the morning to get bait.
When he didn't return, his family alerted the coast guard who searched for over 12 hours with no sign of the 53-year-old.
DeLarso's daughter took to Facebook to spread the word about her missing father.
MISSING PERSON!!!! I never in 1 million years thought I’d have to make a post like this but my dad, Sam DeLarso, is MISSING!!! He left yesterday morning to go fishing on OC NJ North End Beach. We found his truck and phone, but no signs of him. All of the authorities have been notified and the coastguard, state, and local police are all searching.
