State EnCon Police, State Police Troop G, Westport Marine Dive Team and USCG helicopter searched for a possible second person, but there was no sign of another person.
“We have developed enough information that we have a level of confidence that somebody's not in the water," Westport Police Chief Foti Koskinas said. "There's nobody reporting a loved one or a friend missing. We also don't have anybody's belongings left on the coastline or in the parking lot.”
State EnCon Police are still investigating.
