Crew members of the yacht Mikala Rose reported to police Sunday morning that another crew member was last seen swimming near the marina Saturday morning around 9:30 a.m. But a search by St. Thomas Rescue personnel Sunday turned up nothing.
Police said the body of the missing crew member was found Monday during a search by Department of Planning and Natural Resources personnel, police and a diver. The identity of the victim is being withheld pending notification of kin.
Police said an autopsy will be performed to rule out foul play.
