STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) _ Stamford police are investigating the apparent drowning of a 68-year-old city man whose body was found under his boat after friends reported him missing.

Officials told The Advocate of Stamford that state police divers found the man’s body Sunday afternoon under his boat at a private marina at Stamford Landing. His name is being withheld until after police notify his relatives.

Police Lt. Diedrich Hohn says the man was reported to have fallen off his boat in a separate incident a week earlier. He was reported missing by his friends Wednesday.

Hohn says investigators will be looking at the man’s personal life and recent credit card usage.

The chief medical examiner’s office has scheduled an autopsy for Tuesday.
