Watertown Man Missing in Nahant

Watertown man Nolan Gargas, 26, was first reported missing early Sunday afternoon

A man is missing in the water in the area of Nahant Bay, off of the town of Nahant on the north shore of Massachusetts, according to the United States Coast Guard.

Watertown man Nolan Gargas, 26, was first reported missing by his family to the Watertown Police Department around 10:00 a.m. on Sunday.

Gargas is white, 6'2", with brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing a tshirt, brown pants, and boots.

Nahant, Beverly, and Revere police - as well as the Massachusetts State Police -all searched for Gargas along with the Coast Guard. The search has been called off for the night but may resume Monday.

Gargas's mother said that she saw her son Saturday night and thinks he probably woke up early to photograph the sunrise, which is something he is known to do.

His car was found near the water in the East Point area Nahant at about 4:00 a.m., according to police.

Police said that, although the search centered near Gargas's car, there's technically no proof that the missing man was in the area.
