Police say a body was found Sunday on Charles Island off the coast of Milford.
The body was found near where a Bridgeport man was swept away by the current on Friday. There was no immediate word on the identity of the body that was found, but authorities say it fits the description of the missing man.
As News 12 has reported, 28-year-old George Swaby and another man rode their bikes to the beach in Milford Friday and started to walk out toward Charles Island when the rising tides suddenly swept them away.
Authorities say a passing boater rescued Swaby's friend, who was treated and released from Milford Hospital. But Swaby was swept away, sparking an intense search effort.
The search was suspended on Saturday.
