Update Sunday morning: Two Coast Guard motor lifeboats and a helicopter searched the area. They report they saw thousands of flashing glitter near shore coming from the sun’s reflection as the waves crashed on the headlands. Sometimes we forget what a sunny day on the Oregon Coast looks like. At least the Coast Guardsmen aboard the helo and lifeboats got to enjoy the day from a gorgeous spot!
The Coast Guard has just broadcast a mariner alert for someone using a mirror signal between Whaler’s Cove and Rocky Creek, near Depoe Bay. The Coast Guard is underway out of Depoe Bay to investigate. Possible on shore distressed person.
