CAMBRIDGE, Md. - Maryland Department of Natural Resources Police pulled a body out of the Choptank River near Cambridge on Tuesday morning.  The body may be that of a boater from Easton who has been missing since November.

DNR Police removed the body from the Choptank River near Horn Point Tuesday morning.  The body will be sent to the medical examiner's office in Baltimore for a positive identification and DNR police will work to notify the next of kin.

It is possible the body is 63-year-old Edward Aasvik of Easton.  Aasvik has been missing since November when his boat mysteriously appeared near Cambridge with nobody on board.  Horn Point is in the area where DNR police have been searching for Aasvik since late last year.
