The Coast Guard says the body of a missing boater has been found in the waters off Long Island.

The woman's body was found Sunday morning by a recreational boater three miles south of Montauk Point.

She had been reported to have fallen overboard from a boat Saturday night.

The Coast Guard received an emergency distress call from a man stating that a 39-year old woman from his boat was missing in the waters east of Montauk.

The pair were the only ones on the 45-foot Carver pleasure craft.
