GROTON — Authorities said a body has been found in a river near a submarine base.
Naval Submarine Base New London spokesman Chris Zendan said sailors found the body of Lyle Dagenais in the Thames River along the base waterfront Tuesday afternoon.
Dagenais went missing Feb. 19 after heading to the river to fish and kayak. Crews located his kayak in the village of Gales Ferry the afternoon of Feb. 20. The Coast Guard later called off the search.
