Last week, local resident Chas Sneyers was found dead, floating in the surf along a remote stretch of coastline just north of Summerland Beach. Though authorities have yet to determine an official cause of death, they believe 52-year-old Sneyers drowned in an alcohol-related accident. Sneyers was reportedly living on a boat near Santa Barbara Harbor at the time of his death and was last seen late Monday night leaving a local bar. He was discovered by a man walking his dog late last Wednesday afternoon.
