CAMDEN, North Carolina (Wavy) – The body of a missing boatman was found Tuesday night in the Pasquotank River near Camden.

Two local fishermen took Jones on a boat that was sailing on a tree about 600-700 meters from the shore, but no one was found on board. They then began searching the shoreline and around 6.30pm found the body about a mile from the boat.
The incident is still under investigation and the man’s identity was due to be revealed on Wednesday. Jones really shared that the man was 69 and he was from Elizabeth City.
He added that the man was not wearing a life jacket.
