Authorities in Camden County said a body was found Monday afternoon near the mouth of the North River, and it may be that of one of three crabbers missing for nearly a week.

The Camden County Sheriff’s Office said a call was received at 2:42 p.m. that a body was spotted by a passing boater at the mouth of the North River near the Camden Point Shores area.

The Coast Guard recovered the body at 5:13 p.m. and it was transported to the state medical examiners office in Greenville.

According to a sheriff’s office statement, it could not immediately confirm if the body  was one of the crabbers from Camden Point who have not been seen since last Tuesday.

The trio departed the fishing community of Camden Point on a white and yellow 1974 Silverton with an outboard engine and fiberglass cabin loaded with crab pots and headed out into the Albemarle Sound or one of its tributaries.

A search will resume Tuesday morning by officers from the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission, N.C. Marine Patrol and the Camden Sheriff’s Office.
