The chief said Missey was using a canoe to reach his drifting boat when the accident occurred.

The drowning was reported about 5 p.m. after a 15-year-old boy, who was walking his dog in the area, noticed the victim’s body floating near a dock behind a residence on Minda Rae Court.

The man was discovered approximately three houses away from his property, according to the chief.
