Body of Missing Fisherman Found

Police found the body of James Coghlan, 63, of Folcroft, Pa. Thursday afternoon.

The search for a missing Delaware County fisherman ended in tragedy.

Six days since his disappearance, the body of James Coghlan, 63, of Folcroft, was found in the Darby Creek in Montgomery Park on Thursday.

While an autopsy is set to be performed on Friday, the Medical Examiner already identified the body as Coghlan's.

Police say Coghlan went missing last Friday after going fishing at his normal spot on 933 Taylor Drive in Montgomery Park. Coghlan's family believes the Vietnam veteran may have suffered a seizure and fallen in the water.

The exact cause of death will be determined on Friday.
