Autopsy For Missing Boy Found On Beach

The body of a boy who disappeared in rough surf on the Outer Banks has been found.

12 year-old Chance Cosgrove was body surfing with his father and uncle at the beach at Corolla Friday. A wave knocked all three of them down and Chance disappeared. He's from Pearl River, New York.

The Currituck County Sheriff's Office says a person walking on the beach Tuesday morning found the body of the boy. The discovery was made about a mile from where Chance was last seen in the water.

Officials say the body was secured and taken to a fire department. The family has been notified and is with the body. An autopsy has been scheduled, but no date has been given.

The Coast Guard says intermittent rain and wind hampered Monday's search. The initial search efforts were affected by Tropical Storm Danny.
