Search suspended for overboard boater

The Coast Guard suspended its search at 8:30 p.m. Sunday for a missing man – and active duty member of the Coast Guard – near Barnegat Bay, N.J. A body was recovered in the area Tuesday and authorities suspect it to be the victim.

Watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Delaware Bay received a call from a good Samaritan at 6 p.m. Saturday, reporting that a 23-foot powerboat struck a boat wake and two of the occupants were thrown into the water.

One of the men was immediately pulled from the water, while the other did not resurface.
