Swimmer’s body found in Duck

The body of a swimmer who went missing in the surf Saturday in Duck was found this morning by Town of Duck police.

Kyler Miles, 35, of Ohio was found at 4:12 a. m. Monday, the town said in a news release.

On Sept. 22, at approximately 7:53 a.m., Duck Surf Rescue, Duck Fire and Police and Dare County EMS units were dispatched to a swimmer in distress at the Acorn Oak beach access.

The swimmer could not be located upon arrival by rescue personnel and a joint air and water search was initiated. Dare MedFlight provided initial aerial support to Duck Surf Rescue and Duck Fire Department swimmers.

The U.S. Coast Guard later relieved Dare MedFlight and continued the search for the missing swimmer with a helicopter and large vessel.

Miles is the ninth person to die this year in ocean-related incidents along the Outer Banks.

On Saturday morning, the National Weather Service had issued an alert warning of a high risk of rip currents and dangerous shore break north of Cape Hatteras.
