Ridgway Marine Presumed Dead

The US Marine Corps believes a Ridgway native is dead.

26-year-old Cpl. Donovan Clancy went missing in the North Pacific late last month.

The search for him was called off on Friday, and the Marines announced on Monday that he is presumed dead.

Clancy’s squadron was based in Okinawa, Japan. Authorities believe he may have been cooling off in ocean water following a workout, and got caught up in heavy surf conditions.
