STONE HARBOR, N.J. (AP) - A jet skier reported missing Tuesday night in southern New Jersey has been found alive.

Coast Guard Petty Officer 2nd Class Cindy Oldham says 68-year-old Thomas Graham was found alive around 8:30 a.m. Wednesday in the northern side of the Great Sound in Cape May County.

Oldham says he was taken to Cape May Regional Medical Center as a precaution.

She says a Coast Guard helicopter spotted Graham standing on his jet ski and waving what appeared to be a green flag. Another jet skier part of the search party then rescued Graham and he was brought ashore on a boat.

“We were coming over the water and I saw the jet ski first,” said Petty Officer 2nd Class James Caliendo, the air crewmember who first spotted Graham. “My adrenaline started going. We circled Graham and hovered near his location. This alerted the others looking for Graham to his location.”

Investigators said Graham was reported missing by his wife after he didn’t come home Tuesday night.
