Police Find Body Of Swimmer Missing In Md.

TUSCARORA, Md. (AP) — Authorities say they have found the body of swimmer who went missing in the Monocacy River this week.

Maryland Natural Resources Police say the body of Agustinn Roques, 20, was found in the river near Tuscarora about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday. Roques had been missing since Monday, when he was with friends along the river near a boat ramp off Park Mills Road.

Police spokesman Sgt. Art Windemuth says Roques told friends he was going for a swim. When he didn’t return after about an hour, Windemuth says Roques’ friends began searching for him and eventually called police.

Windemuth says authorities used boats, dogs and a helicopter to search for Roques.

Police say Roques was originally from Guatemala and had lived in Laurel.
