Missing boater found dead in Chautauqua Lake...

Authorities have now recovered the body of a fisherman from Wyoming County who has been missing since a week ago yesterday.  Sheriff Joe Gerace's office reports that Bemus Point Fire rescue crews found 64 year-old David Spink of Varysburg dead in the northern end of Chautauqua Lake about 6:45 this morning.  Gerace says Spink went missing after he was seen leaving Camp Prendergast about 7 PM on Wed., May 13.  Deputies say Spink planned to launch his boat from Prendergast Point... and, pick-up the friend.  He was reported missing the following day by family members.  Offices say his unoccupied boat was discovered on shore at Long Point State Park.  We have a call into the Sheriff for more details... and, hope to hear back from him later this morning.
