Larchmont Police: Body found in Long Island Sound

Larchmont police have recovered a body in the Long Island sound this morning.

Police speculate that the body is that of missing Mount Vernon firefighter James Drago. Drago disappeared a week ago after jumping from a boat into the Sound.

Larchmont police say they can't confirm if it is Drago until the medical examiner's office gives a positive identification.

However, investigators say the body was found only a mile from where Drago went missing and it's likely that it is Drago.
