New Jersey State police believe that the body of a missing duck hunter has been found not far from where he disappeared in Mantua Creek last November. DNA testing is being done on the body, but police strongly suspect it is 23-year-old Chris Petit of Gibbstown.

Pettit and three other hunters tumbled into the creek in Paulsboro during a sudden storm.

Three men surfaced while Pettit did not.

Repeated searches at the time turned up nothing.
