Body of missing Mobile boater found

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - The body of a missing boater has been recovered from Mobile Bay, near the area where his boat capsized.

Alabama Marine Police Lt. Michael Coleman said the body of 43-year-old Chris Harris of Mobile was spotted Sunday night.

The Coast Guard said it received a call just after midnight Friday that a pleasure boat had capsized just north of Fort Morgan.

Harris was on a fishing trip with his 16-year-old stepson and brother-in-law, who both swam to shore. Harris was last seen
clinging to an ice chest.
