Body of missing New York man recovered after fishing boat sank

The body of one of two boaters who went missing in the Long Island Sound off Connecticut has been recovered, authorities said.

The remains of Juan Gabriel Valle Pineda were recovered Monday around 4:30 p.m. by Bridgeport Fire Department staffers, Westport Police Lt. Eric Woods said.

Pineda, 38, of Spring Valley, New York, was one of five people in a small fishing boat that sank Sunday near Westport. Three of them were rescued.

The sunken boat was found earlier Tuesday, Woods said.

"Westport police extend our sympathies to the family of the deceased and are hopeful of recovering the second missing person," he said.
