Police are investigating suspicious packages found at Winthrop Beach on Saturday.
The Coast Guard says crews are looking for a possible missing person on Winthrop Beach.
It is all part of $21.5 million project to rebuild a mile and half of beach which has been decimated by decades of winter storms.
No sooner had the town of Winthrop begun a long awaited project to reinforce Winthrop Beach, then Hurricane Sandy threatened the New England coastline.
After being beaten by storms for decades, repairs are being made to the beach to make it a destination for families.
