CRANSTON, R.I. (AP) - Authorities say the body that washed ashore in Little Compton is that of a fisherman from Lincoln whose boat capsized earlier this month.

Adam Perry Sr. went missing since his boat capsized more than two weeks ago off Little Compton. Two other men on the boat were rescued a day after the incident. One was clinging to rocks, the other to a lobster buoy.

The U.S. Coast Guard, police and firefighters called off the search for Perry after there was no sign of him, but loved ones continued to look.

His body washed up ashore Friday afternoon.

WJAR-TV (https://bit.ly/1pojSaH ) reports that official from the Department of Environmental Management on Saturday confirmed that the body was that of the 61-year-old Perry.

His family has scheduled a memorial for Perry for Sunday evening.
