Missing sailor's body surfaces near FarallonesSAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The San Francisco medical examiner says a body found off the Farallon Islands is 1 of 4 sailors that have been missing since their yacht capsized during a race earlier this month.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/KlTede ) that the body of 25-year-old Jordan Fromm was spotted Thursday near the islands, located about 27 miles west of San Francisco.
3 of Fromm's crewmates have yet to be found since the April 14 accident: Alexis Busch, Alan Cahill and Elmer Morrissey. The body of 46-year-old Marc Kasanin was found previously.
The news comes after the Sonoma County coroner identified another body found in the ocean below Bodega Head as 57-year-old Brian Christopher Abel. There was speculation Abel's body could have been that of another missing sailor.
