1 body of 2 missing Md. swimmers found, police say

WASHINGTON — One body of the two missing swimmers in the Chesapeake Bay was recovered Saturday, Calvert County Sheriff’s office said.

The two brothers were last seen swimming off Cove Point beach Friday night. They were swimming with a juvenile when they entered deep water and became tired from swimming against the tide, police said.

Capt. Todd M. Ireland said it was “presumed” that Daniel Jason Brown, 37, of Lusby, and his brother Douglas Howell Brown, 39, of Mechanicsville, died due to accidental drowning.

The U.S. Coast Guard was searching for the men Saturday morning. The body has not yet been identified.

Crews are still searching for the other body, NBC 4 reports.
