Marine 82 Assists in Search for Missing Elderly Man

On Wednesday Sept. 5 just after 6pm,  the Chews Landing Fire Dept. was dispatched to the Hargrove Marina in Bellmawr.  Members responded with Marine 82 to assist Gloucester County emergency personnel in the search for an 81 year old Deptford man that had been missing since earlier in the day.  He had last been seen near his home, located not far from the shores of nearby Timber Creek.  Fortunately, while crews were out on the water searching, he was found safe and unharmed on dry land.
