BALTIMORE (AP) - Authorities say the body of a missing boater in Middle River has been found.

Maryland Natural Resources Police say the body of 34-year-old Matthew Paul Shonko was recovered Sunday night.

Police spokeswoman Candy Thomson says Shonko was on a boat with a friend when he fell overboard without a life jacket near Galloway Creek on Friday night.

Thomson says police and Baltimore Fire marine units spent the weekend using side-scan SONAR and searching the surface and shorelines before Shonko’s body was recovered.

Authorities say Shonko’s body will be taken to the medical examiner for an autopsy to determine the cause of death.
