The body of 26-year-old Falmouth fisherman Andrew Vassel was found at sea yesterday after going missing Tuesday during a spearfishing outing just offshore his town.

Reports are that Vassell, who was new to spearfishing, went to sea with some of the more experienced fishermen.

Vassel reportedly decided to quit due to heavy winds and was sent back to shore via a channel by the other men.

On completion of their time at sea the other spear fishermen returned to shore but did not find Vassel.

An alarm was made and they along with others went in search of him but he was not found.

A search party found his body yesterday morning.
