March 05, 2018 - 1:46 PM

RUSHMERE, Va. - Authorities say a body that washed up on the banks of Virginia's James River has been identified as that of one of two duck hunters who went missing in January.

Lee Walker, a spokesman for Virginia's Department of Game & Inland Fisheries, said in an email Monday that the remains were identified as those of 20-year-old Brian Austin Savage of Henrico County.

The body was discovered Sunday in Isle of Wight County, and Walker says the cause of death was drowning.

Savage and 29-year-old Kyle Englehart were last seen Jan. 3 leaving the Jamestown Yacht Basin in a 16-foot boat. Their vessel was later found overturned and Englehart remains missing.
