Body of missing kitesurfer recovered in Stratford waters
? The U.S. Coast Guard has recovered the body of a kitesurfer who went missing Saturday off the coast of Stratford.
Search and rescue crews found the man?s body in the Long Island Sound Sunday. Officials say he was a New York resident and was not wearing a life vest. Witnesses called police Saturday after seeing the man struggle in the water at Russian Beach near Stratford. The Coast Guard will release the victim?s name later this week.
The search was one of the Coast Guard?s biggest in the area, with helicopters, ground and water crews.
