This has become a hobby! I'm not sure what the Canadian Coast Guard is doing in flying around our area... it went around and around. Training, maybe? I'm not sure about this one. It's a frequent flyer, however!
This was a startling story. Apparently, there were two incidents on Lake Erie that night, but the dispatcher didn't believe that was a second one. There was a rescue off Port Bruce, but this couple couldn't see that rescue from where they were. That's what they told the dispatcher. Such a shame.
It is the second time area residents have come forward describing seeing multiple flares the night the sailor went missing, saying the authorities did not respond to their calls.
The next morning, the couple said they saw the Hercules and the OPP helicopters. Reginald Fisher was missing for more than two weeks before a jogger found his body on the beach in the Port Burwell area.
