The body of a man reported to have fallen off a barge about 12 days ago was found Monday morning at the mouth of the South River, Maryland Natural Resources Police said.
Gregory S. Luckett, 49, of Pasadena, was found in the chilly waters near Mayo Beach about 11:30 a.m. Anne Arundel County police recovered the body.
Luckett was reported missing about 4:05 p.m. Nov. 5 from a 25-foot barge. U.S. Coast Guard officials, joined by several other agencies, had searched for him through the night after they were told he fell into the water while returning from a work site. The search covered about 60 square nautical miles. The search was suspended the next day.
An investigation by the Coast Guard and Natural Resources Police is under way.
The body was taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner in Baltimore for an autopsy, said Natural Resources Police spokesman Art Windemuth.
