PORT JEFFERSON, N.Y. (AP) - An 80-year-old man is dead and another man is missing after a boat was found overturned in the Long Island Sound off Port Jefferson.

Suffolk County police say Coast Guard officials recovered the body of Charles Petrie, of Holtsville, at about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday after the 20-foot center console was discovered just west of the Port Jefferson Channel.

Crews are still searching for 73-year-old James Bilello, of Bay Shore. He was believed to have been with Petrie at the time of the mishap.
