STRATFORD — The body of a missing New York man was recovered from Long Island Sound.

The body of Gregory Blanco, 41, from Northport, N.Y., was found after an all-out search by the Coast Guard and local agencies.

“Our deepest condolences go out to the family and friends of Mr. Blanco during this painful time,” said Cmdr. Kevin Reed, deputy Coast Guard Sector Long Island Sound.

Coast Guard Sector Long Island Sound watchstanders received a call Monday about 8:30 a.m., from a good Samaritan reporting an unmanned red, 14-foot, one person kayak north of Stratford Shoal Middle Ground.

Sector Long Island Sound issued an urgent marine information broadcast on VHF-channel-16 and launched a boat crew from Coast Guard Station New Haven and Eatons Neck.

The boat crews arrived on the scene and located the kayak with personal items on board. Markings on the kayak and the position it was found in suggested the owner departed out of the Northport area.

Suffolk County Police Department officials located Blanco's vehicle at the Soundview Boat Ramp Marina in Northport.

The National Weather Service posted a small craft advisory for Monday because seas were two to four feet, with southwest wind gusts of up to 25 knots. The water temperature is a chilly 60 degrees in the middle of the Sound.

Stratford Shoal is essentially in the middle of Long Island Sound. A lighthouse on the site warns mariners of rocks and shallow water depths.
