Brick police are trying to track down the owner of a 1969 Formula that was found floating, abandoned and stripped of its engine and mechanical components near the Glenwood Avenue boat ramp last month.

The department’s marine unit said in a statement that a small pick up truck pulled up to the ramp April 17 and set the boat adrift into the Metedeconk River. The vessel, a yellow 23-foot 1969 Formula, drifted in the area until it partially submerged at the ramp.
