Body of Missing Man Found in Irondequoit Bay


Divers are working to recover a body found in Irondequoit Bay in the murky water where Shawn Ross of Webster disappeared yesterday.

Chief Sheriff's Deputy Mike Fowler says the body was found about 45 feet off the muddy bluffs on the Webster side known as Sand Point. He says the recovery is a deliberate process and would take some time. The body was spotted with side-scanning sonar which was used to guide the divers.

The theory is that while wading in shallow water at Sandy Point, Ross stepped too far and tumbled into the 60-foot deep boating channel.

Ross' family has been notified.
