PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Police have recovered the body of a man who’s believed to have drowned after a sailboat capsized in the Delaware River.

Authorities say the body was found about 5:30 p.m. Friday, and appears to fit the description of a 66-year-old man who had gone missing Tuesday night from a 21-foot sailboat, Philly.com (http://bit.ly/1q5R3AE0 ) reported.

The boat’s captain told officials he and four passengers were trying to make it upriver to their home port at a Yacht Club in Torresdale when a wave sank the vessel. Four of the people made it to shore.

Authorities are contacting relatives and haven’t identified the man yet.
