Authorities have not been able to determine if the body of a man discovered in the Susquehanna River Tuesday is that of a York County canoeist who disappeared on Sunday.
Lancaster County Coroner Dr. Stephen Diamantoni said his office is still working to see if it is Robert Brennan, 63, of Wrightsville, who went missing after his canoe capsized just north of Marietta in Conoy Township.
“We are attempting to find dental records to help us make a positive I.D.,” Diamantoni said after an autopsy on Wednesday. “We know he is a middle-aged man and he died from freshwater drowning.”
According to the group’s website, it takes seven days to reach the Philadelphia Boathouse Row from their launch site in Schuylkill Haven. The canoeists and kayakers paddle between 14 and 18 miles a day, stopping for lunch, then camping overnight.
