Body of missing Lancaster County boater is found

AIRVILLE, Pa. - The search for a missing boater in the Susquehanna River has ended.

Police say crews discovered the body of Christopher Johnson, 24, of Lancaster County near Long Level, not far from where he had been fishing last week.

Johnson's boat was discovered May 21 on the York County shore, with an uninjured young Labrador retriever still on board. Johnson was a 2002 graduate of Penn Manor High School and was a culinary student at York Technical Institute. An Iraq war veteran, Johnson lost his arm to machine-gun fire during fighting in Fallujah.
