Missing Clammer's Body Found In Long Cove

Jan 8, 2018

Officials have confirmed that the body of a clammer who disappeared during last week’s blizzard has been found.

The body of 35-year-old Paul Benner was found around noon Monday in Long Cove, where he went missing.

Benner went missing after heading out to dig clams in last week’s blizzard. When he failed to return, a search was launched by air and sea.

Officials say the search was made difficult by subzero weather, ice and slush.
