We continue to help State Parks search for missing 4 and 6 year old at Blind Beach. The surf is very dangerous – please don’t come out here to try to help. Man who drowned yesterday is Michael Wyman, 40, Petaluma. Our sincerest condolences to his family. pic.twitter.com/FujovDnd3m

Sonoma County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Michael Raasch disclosed to ABC7 News that a companion and the spouse of Wyman, 40, hauled his body out of the water.
“At the point when the mounted force arrived, we were looking for the children, we found a couple of shoes that cleaned up, and a coat, yet no indication of children. We searched for quite a long time,” Raasch said.
Specialists encouraged individuals to avoid the seashore because of risky surf conditions.
“The crew is holding on at the shed hanging tight for a break in the weather,” the Sonoma County Sheriff’s area of expertise said on Facebook. “The dive members won’t be looking since it’s excessively risky for the divers. We are giving best effort to discover them to bring closure to the family.”
