Elderly Man's Body Found In Core Creek

The body of an elderly Carteret County man has been recovered after authorities say he may have fallen off his boat.

Leslie Norris was reported missing Saturday evening. With the help of the U.S. Coast Guard, deputies began their search of the Core Creek area.

Monday morning as a dive team was about to begin searching, an employee of Tow Boat US spotted the body.

Deputies say they believe the 81-year-old man was working on his boat that he kept docked in Sea Gate and possibly fell overboard last week.
