COLCHESTER, Vt. (AP) - Police searching for a missing boater on Lake Champlain say they’ve found the body of a man in Mallets Bay.

The body was found by the Colchester Police Marine Unit at about 7:45 a.m. Wednesday in the waters off of West Lakeshore Drive in the area of the International Sailing School.

Police said this area has been the target of the search for a missing boater, 65-year-old Brian Webb. His dinghy was found Monday near Marble Island.

Webb’s wife contacted the Coast Guard on Sunday morning when her husband failed to show up at church. He had reportedly spent the night aboard his 34-foot sailboat, which was anchored and found unoccupied.

Police said the body is being taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Burlington.
