Authorities Resume Search For Teddy Oliviera
The Rhode Island State Police are in Newport today with specially trained dogs to resume and continue the search for missing Newport teen Teddy Oliviera.
Mr. Oliviera has been missing since late last Monday evening where was last seen operating a motorized inflatable dinghy in Newport Harbor. Authorities have recovered the dinghy, containing a backpack with personal possessions identifiable to Mr. Olivera, north of the Newport Bridge on Coaster’s Harbor Island.
The RISP involvement marks a big departure from the U.S. Coast Guard who announced on Wednesday evening that they were suspending the search for Teddy Oliviera after searching more than 600 square miles of ocean.
