Body of Missing Boater Found

Police say they've found the body of a Rochester man who fell out of his boat during an outing on a Lake Ontario bay.

The Wayne County Sheriff's Office says that the body of 40-year-old Tony Weaver of Lyons was found Monday on Sodus Bay in the town of Huron, about 30 miles east of Rochester.

Police say Weaver was alone in his boat Sunday afternoon when he hit a wave that caused his boat to pitch, throwing him into the water.

Deputies say another boater nearby tried to help him but Weaver went under and didn't resurface.

Police searched from the air and water until darkness. They resumed the search Monday morning.
