Body of missing Pa. boater found in Susquehanna

LANCASTER, Pa. (AP) — Authorities in central Pennsylvania say they have recovered the body of missing boater in the Susquehanna River.

The Lancaster County coroner says 57-year-old Jose Suarez-Lopez was found Thursday in the water near Conestoga Township.

The Reading man had been boating with his girlfriend on April 13 when their vessel overturned near Jacks Island, south of the Safe Harbor Dam. The woman was rescued.

A local fire official tells the Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era (http://bit.ly/180imou ) that Lopez’s body was found just north of the Pequea Marina.

Coroner Steve Diamantoni says an autopsy will be conducted Friday morning.
