OCEAN CITY -- Police, family and friends are searching for a 22-year-old man who has been missing for nearly a week and was last seen at an Ocean City bar.
Lance Corey Gaines of Groton, N.Y., hasn't been heard from since the night of Friday, April 20. Ocean City police said he was last seen at Sandbar on 33rd Street at about 1 a.m. Saturday, April 21. One of the 20 or so friends and relatives who have traveled to town since then to form a makeshift search group said he had gone out for a walk and to the bar alone.
Gaines is 6 feet 4 inches tall, weighs 190 pounds and has brown hair and blue eyes. When he was seen at the bar, he was wearing a dark gray hooded sweatshirt.
"My son talked to her, and she had details she couldn't really have had (if she hadn't seen him)," said John Gaines on Thursday. "So we're pretty confident, we think we have a likely sighting on Monday."
