Missing Boater’s Body Found

A missing Connecticut man has been found,  about nine hours after his sailboat was found, sales up and electronics running,  in Riverhead, New York.

Authorities on both sides of the Sound joined the Coast Guard in the search for 63-year-old Francis Closter,  who had set sail for Clinton Marina yesterday.

Early Friday, his wife reported him missing,  and the 34-foot sailboatd “Jagular” was found, unmoored, against a pier,  his wallet and glasses still on board.

His body was found Friday afternoon by a Connecticut State Police Marine Unit.
