The search for a boater is over after a body fitting the description was recovered today from Lake Salvador.

The U.S. Coast Guard says the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office notified them it found the body around 10:20 this morning.

The 22-year-old man was reported overboard without a lifejacket Sunday evening. Rescuers searched 294 square miles for more than 23 hours.

The incident remains under investigation.
