EAST BERLIN, Pa. (AP) - Authorities in central Pennsylvania say a body pulled from a creek has been identified as that of a fisherman who disappeared after a boat carrying him and another man went over a dam several days earlier.

The York County coroner’s office said the body of 41-year-old Jerry Reisinger of Wellsville was found shortly before noon Sunday in Conewago Creek in Washington Township.

Crews had been searching for him since he was tossed into the water as the boat went over the low-head dam just downstream from the Davidsburg Road bridge on Thursday.

The other man was able to reach shore.
