A scallop boat off the Jersey Shore has recovered the remains of a human body. It's near the site where the boat the Lady Mary sank 2 months ago.

The body was found yesterday morning, pulled up in netting near scallop grounds about 60 miles off Cape May.

Authorities wouldn't speculate about the identity of the victim. But two crew members of the Lady Mary remain missing - lost at sea.

The body will be sent to the medical examiner for identification.
