Authorities have recovered a body in Barnegat Bay Tuesday near where a Coast Guardsman fell off a speedboat.
Lt. Tom Ryan of the Ocean County Sheriff's Department told the Asbury Park Press an autopsy will determine if the body is 25-year-old Petty Officer Nicholas Holmes.
Holmes and another man were tossed from the 23-foot boat after being rocked by a wave left by another boat on Saturday night.
There is no posted speed limit in the area.
The other man, who sustained a fracture to his arm, was immediately pulled from the water.
