ISLE OF WIGHT COUNTY, Va. – The body of a man washed up on the shore of Tyler’s Beach in Isle of Wight County on Sunday.

Officials believed that the body may be of one of the two missing boaters that had disappeared in Surry County in January.

On Monday the Medical examiner positively identified the body as missing boater Brian Austin Savage.

The Coast Guard, along with Virginia State Police, the James City County Sheriff’s Office and the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, had suspended their search for the missing boater on January 5.

The two boaters were apparently duck hunting when they went missing on January 3.
