David McKean Wife and Son Disappearance
Mckean’s wife and 8-year-old son Gideon went missing while paddling in a canoe near Maeve’s mother’s waterfront residence in Shady Side, Maryland. Maeve had taken her family to Maryland to stay in quarantine during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic. Some reports from the Maryland Natural Resources Police say they were attempting to retrieve a kickball that had landed in the water.
Due to high winds, the mother and son duo were swept further out into the Chesapeake Bay. Fire officials from Anne Arundel County received an emergency call at 4:30 PM that day from a man who reported seeing a woman and her son, presumably the McKean’s, in a small canoe near the community pier at Columbia Beach.
After a search that spanned several days and involved aviation and underwater imaging sonar technology, authorities recovered McKean’s body Monday 6th April 2020 at about 5:30 p.m. in 25 feet of water. This was about 2 1/2 miles south of her mother’s residence in Shady Side, Maryland, where the canoe was launched.
