Body found near where boat capsized in Lake Erie

Associated Press Published:

PORT CLINTON -- Another body has been recovered in Lake Erie near where a boat with four passengers was found capsized nearly a month ago off the Ohio shore.

The bodies of three of the boaters have been found, including one found this week along a beach east of Toledo.

The U.S. Coast Guard and other agencies have been searching for the fourth victim the past two days.

Authorities say they don't know yet if the body found Thursday afternoon is that of the remaining missing man.

The four boaters set out on a fishing trip April 16 and were reported missing the next day. The bodies of a teenage girl and a 33-year-old woman were recovered later that day.

Investigators say they don't know what caused the boat to capsize.
