Body Recovered From Currituck Sound

The two-week search for a woman missing in the water has ended.

The body of 35-year-old Billy Jo Harris was found in the Currituck Sound Tuesday, not far from where she disappeared. That's according to multiple media reports.

The Tulls Bay Colony woman was on a fishing boat that capsized February 28. Two others on the boat were rescued. A helicopter spotted Harris's body Tuesday.

    My prayers go out to her family. God bless all those who helped look for her and those who prayed! Does anyone know if she was the wife of Jeffrey Harris?

    The family and friends continued the search.

    the search may have been by family/friends, not the coast guard. Doesn't state what kind of helicopter spotted her, could of been a private one. They look at some many varibles I would think as to why they stop a search.
