EASTON, Maryland — In a story July 20 about the death of a boater in Maryland, The Associated Press, relying on information from a member, erroneously reported the spelling of the man's name. He is Alan Meyers, not Allen Myers.
A corrected version of the story is below:
Md. officials find body of missing boater
Officials find body of boater who went missing on Maryland's Eastern Shore
EASTON, Maryland — Officials say they've found the body of a 76-year-old man who went out rowing on the Eastern Shore and didn't come back.
The body of Alan Meyers of St. Michaels was found around 6:15 a.m. Sunday in Broad Creek in Talbot County.
Maryland Natural Resources Police began searching for Myers after he went rowing on Saturday morning and did not return. Myers was not wearing a life jacket.
An official with the Maryland Natural Resources Police says the state's medical examiner will perform an autopsy to determine his cause of death.
