Ohio body believed to be missing Lake Erie boater

PORT CLINTON, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in northwest Ohio say a body found on a beach is believed to be one of two men missing since their boat capsized in western Lake Erie about three weeks ago.

The Ottawa County sheriff indicated that the man's body would be taken to the coroner's office to be identified.

He says an area resident spotted the body Tuesday on a Carroll Township beach, near the region where four boaters set out on April 16. Their capsized boat was found the next morning, and the bodies of a teenage girl and a 33-year-old woman were recovered later that day.

Two men, both in their 30s, have remained missing and were believed to have drowned.
