Body Recovered Off Antrim Coast Confirmed As Missing Polish Angler

#Missing - The body recovered off the Antrim coast last Friday has been confirmed as that of a the Polish national who went missing while sea angling with friends in Portrush a month ago.

Last weekend reported on the recovery of a man's body off the Antrim coast on Friday 11 October.

And according to the Belfast Telegraph, the PSNI has since confirmed that the body has been identified as 38-year-old Jaroslaw Andrykiewicz.

Andrykiewicz, who had been living in Northern Ireland for six years, was swept out to sea while fishing on rocks at Ramore Head on 14 September.

The search operation was slowed in the first few days by stormy conditions along the North Antrim coast, and was eventually wound down earlier this month.

The Belfast Telegraph has much more on this sad story HERE.
