The body of a missing jet skier has been found in Lake Ontario. The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office says that the body of 43-year-old Onofhil “Tony” Nieves was located by the department’s SCUBA and Marine Units on Thursday morning.

Nieves was missing since last Saturday, when he was last seen operating a jet ski. His body was discovered at about 8:00 a.m. on Thursday near Durand Beach. The Monroe County Medical Examiner's Office positively identified Nieves.
