What more can you tell us about Thomas ‘Andy’ Richmond and his disappearance?

Andrew Dunn

Thomas "Andy" RichmondThere has been no update on Thomas “Andy” Richmond since the U.S. Coast Guard suspended the search for him July 3, 2010.

But friends fondly remember him as an avid fisherman and a great friend.

Patrols began looking for Richmond on July 1, 2010, when he was reported missing from Ocean Isle Beach. His boat, named “Heads or Tails,” was discovered a few hours later washed ashore at Myrtle Beach, engines running.

Richmond, 55, had been married a short time and moved from Concord – where he still has family – to Ocean Isle Beach about five years ago, said Jim Braddock, one of Richmond’s neighbors on Cumberland Street. He loved to go fishing, often inviting neighbors to go with him.

“He was a very fine person,” Braddock said.

He had no children, but his wife still lives in Ocean Isle Beach and has had a hard time dealing with his disappearance, Braddock said.

    What kind of work did he do before he retired? Did he ever raise horses? What did the name of his boat mean?

    Andrew asked neighbors about the boat name and whether he had horses, but they didn’t know. Perhaps other readers will know more about Richmond and what line of work he was in before he retired.
