Maryland boater found dead near Patuxent River Bridge

A missing boater has been found dead near the Patuxent River Bridge in Southern Maryland.

Maryland Natural Resources Police say the body of 41-year-old Scott L. Suder of Huntingtown was discovered near his capsized boat in Calvert County on Sunday afternoon.

Police say Suder was last seen about noon Saturday just before a storm came through the area. Nearby residents called authorities after spotting the overturned boat the following morning.

Police spokeswoman Candy Thomson said a state police helicopter, officers, divers and the Coast Guard searched the river for most of the day. They found Suder's body along the shoreline, and his 16-foot skiff was found in about four feet of water.

Authorities say he was not wearing a life jacket.

An autopsy is pending and the investigation is ongoing.
