Body on beach ID'd as missing Lake Erie boater

Posted: Updated:
PORT CLINTON, Ohio (AP) - A body found on a beach along Lake Erie is one of two Ohio men who had been missing since their boat capsized east of Toledo about three weeks ago.

The coroner's office in Lucas County on Wednesday confirmed the death of 32-year-old Bryan Huff of Rossford.

He was one of four people on the boat that was reported missing a day after they went out fishing April 16. Their capsized boat was found the next day along with the bodies of a teenage girl and a 33-year-old woman.

The Ottawa County sheriff says a resident spotted Huff's body Tuesday on a beach near the area where the boaters set out.

The other man who was on the boat remains missing and is presumed dead.
