Charles “Chuck” Duckett, 35, who was working at the Triadelphia Watershed in Montgomery County, may have been out in a boat, authorities said.

On Friday and over the weekend, Montgomery County Fire Rescue and other agencies, including the Department of Natural Resources Police, Maryland State Police and Baltimore City Fire Department Water Rescue and Dive Unit , searched the area.

“We’re not giving up. Please help us find him, and keep him in your prayers until we do,” the Duckett family said in a statement read by a family friend that was provided by the WSSC.

Duckett, of Middle River, has worked for the WSSC for 12 years. He and his wife have three children.

“I want to express our deepest concerns for the Duckett family,” said General Manager and CEO Jerry N. Johnson. “We are using every available resource and sparing no effort to locate Mr. Duckett. We are also doing everything we can to help the family in what is obviously a difficult time.”

Anyone with information can call the Montgomery County Fire Rescue media hotline at 240-777-2442.
