FAIRFIELD, CT (WFSB) -

Crews in Fairfield are investigating after a man's body washed ashore on Thursday afternoon.

The body was found in the area of Jennings Beach, near a marina.

Bridgeport city officials said the body is that of a boater who went missing 10 days ago.

Crews were searching for the man last week. Two adults had been in the Bridgeport Harbor, and one of the adults was rescued from some type of flotation device, but the second person was reported missing.

The man's identity has not yet been released.
