FAIRFIELD, N.J. -- Police continued the search Tuesday for two missing U.S. goose hunters in the Delaware Bay marshes of South Jersey.
The two men and a third whose body was discovered late Sunday failed to return from a trip Saturday, The Daily Journal of Vineland (N.J.) reported. Their families reported them missing Sunday, triggering a search.
State troopers found a car and boat trailer at a dead end near the water.
The body of Jan Toryfter, 45, of Princeton, N.J., was 200 yards from the hunters' boat, said Sgt. Stephen Jones, a spokesman for the state police. The boat was upside down and had gear stowed beneath it.
The missing men were identified as Jozef Karamuz, 69, an emergency room doctor at Holy Redeemer Hospital in Philadelphia, and Zdzislaw "Jerry" Piorkowski, 59, the owner of Podhale Travel Agency in Philadelphia.
The Coast Guard and state police cooperated in the search, using helicopters and boats. The boat and Toryfter's body were both found by a helicopter equipped with a spotlight.
