On April 2, three weeks after the disappearance, a citizen reported to DRPS an object, described as an orange object ringed with a black fringe, which he noted floating 700 meters offshore east of the nuclear plant. DRPS attended and spoke with the man. The sun was setting so they could not see the object.
An officer went to Eastshore marina and met with a local man who lived on his boat in the marina, who stated that he had also seen a similar object.
The TPS Marina Unit came to the area after 10 PM and reported they could not find anything.
