DUCK, N.C. – The body of a missing swimmer in Duck, North Carolina, was found Monday, nearly two days after the U.S. Coast Guard suspended its helicopter and large vessel search for the 35-year-old.

Officials identified the swimmer as Kyler Miles, who was visiting from Miamisburg, Ohio.

At approximately 7:53 a.m. Saturday, units were dispatched to the beach access at Acorn Oak Avenue for a swimmer in distress. 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 also arrived on scene to participate in the search.

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