Two men were reported in the water. Charles County Fire and Rescue pulled one of the men from the water, but they were unable to locate the second man.

The man who was rescued reported his friend was wearing camouflage clothing and waders.

A crew aboard a 25-foot response boat from Coast Guard Station Washington, a Maryland Natural Resources Police boat crew, crews aboard two Maryland State Police helicopters and a Charles County boat crew responded to search for the other man.
