Authorities have found a boater who failed to return home from a trip to Absecon Creek.

A Coast Guard helicopter crew spotted Kevin Showell in a marsh near his 14-foot boat in Big Fish Thorofare.

The state police used a boat to recover the 25-year-old. The Coast Guard says he did not require medical treatment.

His family reported him missing late Thursday night.

Weather conditions overnight were poor as a nor'easter buffeted parts of south Jersey with strong winds and heavy rain.
