BOSTON (AP) - The Coast Guard says the body of a fisherman who apparently fell overboard about 35 miles southeast of Nantucket has been recovered.

The 54-year-old man’s body was found at about 1 a.m. Monday.

The crew of the fishing vessel Hear No Evil, out of New Bedford, recovered the body and positively identified the missing crewman.

The man, who was not wearing a life jacket, was reported missing at about 8:30 p.m. Sunday. The Coast Guard did not release his name.

Once recovered, the body was transferred to a Coast Guard cutter and taken ashore.
