The search for a young man reported missing in the Delaware River ended in tragedy last night.


According to NBC 10, 'two men and a woman were walking along the waterfront ledge and then jumped over the railing to swim across the river to Burlington Island where an abandoned amusement park is located.  As the swimmers got to the halfway point, one of the men, who is in his 20's, started to struggle.'

As of 9PM last night, local officials found the body of the missing young man.  He has yet to be identified.  The body was found near York Street in Burlington City.
Burlington City Officials have issued a ban against swimming across the river to Burlington island, but people still do it.  This is the third incident someone was reported missing along the Delaware River in two days.
