CHINCOTEAGUE, Va. (WAVY) — One person is dead and another is missing after a boat capsized in the Chincoteague Bay, according to the Virginia Marine Police.

Two of the people were rescued by a Good Samaritan who stayed with the vessels until help arrived. They were transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Coast Guard officials rescued a man who had died. He has since been identified as Cory Alles.

A 17-year-old boy remains missing. The search for him will continue in the morning.
