DOVER, Del. (AP) - Authorities say a body recovered Sunday from Black Bird Creek has been identified as that of a 45-year-old Townsend man reported missing the previous night.
Officials with the state fish and wildlife enforcement agency say John H. Fisher had gone crabbing in his boat Saturday afternoon. His family reported later that evening that he was late returning home.
Searchers found Fisher's body near his boat about 11 a.m. Sunday. He was not wearing a life jacket.
The body was turned over to the medical examiner's office to determine the cause of death.
