Posted: Updated:

STAFFORD, Va. (AP) - Authorities have found the body of a boater near Stafford and continue to search for a second missing boater.

Maryland Natural Resources Police spokeswoman Candy Thomson says the body was found Thursday afternoon. She didn't have details.

The Coast Guard says staff at a yacht club reported 58-year-old Charles Zintner and 55-year-old Melissa Smarr as overdue late Wednesday night.

The Coast Guard said Thursday in a news release that the couple was last seen aboard a 19-foot boat. A Maryland State Police helicopter crew found the boat anchored in Potomac River about a mile from the yacht club.
