The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said Tuesday that the body of Kenneth Rose Sr. was found Saturday on the beach at the north end of Pea Island National Wildlife Refuge by a visitor collecting seashells.
Rose was one of three crew members on board the Sea Tractor when it sank in bad weather off Cape May. Also aboard were his 49-year-old son Kenneth Jr. and 55-year-old crew member Larry Forrest. They have not been found.
A life raft from the Sea Tractor had washed up at the wildlife refuge several days before Rose's body was found.
