Body of 1 of 2 missing boaters recovered in Potomac River

- (AP) -- Officials have recovered the body of one of two missing boaters in the Potomac River in Frederick County.

Maryland Natural Resources Police spokeswoman Candy Thomson says 51-year-old Robert E. Lee of Frederick was pulled from the water Tuesday afternoon. An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday.

Crews are still searching for 62-year-old Lawrence Grey Jr. of Brunswick, the second man who was in the boat with Lee when the two went missing Sunday.

The capsized boat was found that day near the south end of Heater's Island, downstream from the boat ramp where they began their fishing trip early that morning.
