#LoughRee - A body has been found in the search for a Northern Irish angler missing for more than two weeks in Lough Ree, according to TheJournal.ie.
As reported four days ago on Afloat.ie, Daryl Burke had not been seen since the boat he was travelling in with two angling colleagues David Warnock and John Trimble overturned not far from Hodson Bay outside Athlone, Co Westmeath on the afternoon of 20 March.
Warnock and Trimble were rescued in the emergency operation that launched immediately after the incident, but Warnock died in hospital some hours later.
This week the search for Burke was concentrated on the area where the trio's boat was recovered undamaged.
And it's now being reported that a diving team from Boyne Fishermen's Rescue and Recovery Service discovered a body in a part of the lough known as The Wall yesterday afternoon (Saturday 5 April).
