NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - The U.S. Coast Guard says a 1,000-gallon propane tank that had been missing since Tropical Storm Irene in August 2011 has been fished out of the Connecticut River.

Representatives of the Coast Guard, state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection and Coast Guard Auxiliary aircraft searched the area after being notified last Wednesday that the tank was seen floating in the river. Responders found nothing.

The Coast Guard said Tuesday that the tank was found on Haddam Island late last week during a Connecticut National Guard helicopter training flight.

Coast Guard spokesman Lt. Jeff Janaro said the tank was at an apartment complex, but he didn’t know the name of the company that owned it.
