TRURO (CBS) — The body of a man who went missing off the coast of Truro Saturday was found and identified. Ross Williamson of Bolton, CT, was 28, according to the District Attorney.

The Coast Guard was notified of a person in the water at 2:30 p.m. Saturday but suspended the search around 8 p.m. in hopes that they could resume it Sunday.

Rescue crews were searching for the swimmer near the shore at Ballston Beach. The search did not continue on Sunday as initially anticipated, said the Coast Guard.

The D.A. said there is no reason to believe that Williamson’s death is suspicious.

Saturday’s search included a response boat crew from Coast Guard Station Provincetown, a rescue aircrew from Air Station Cape Cod, a Massachusetts State Police helicopter, a dive team from the Sandwich Fire Department and the Truro Fire Department.

Truro police closed all ocean side beaches to swimming.
