MILBRIDGE — Officials say the body of a fisherman who went missing in April has been found in the ocean waters off eastern Maine.

Marine Patrol Lt. Alan Talbot told the Bangor Daily News that the body of 44-year-old Alton Jellison of Milbridge was found today by a tour boat off the coast of Milbridge.

Jellison and his brother, 43-year-old Jack Jellison, went missing in mid-April after heading out in a small skiff. Jack Jellison’s body was found shortly after a search began.

The brothers were lobstermen and clam diggers, but they were headed to a nearby island where there is a camp to get away for the weekend.
