Body of man from capsized sailboat found off San Diego

A body believed to be that of a 50-year-old man tossed into the water when his sailboat capsized near the north jetty of Mission Bay in San Diego has been recovered, officials said Monday.

The man's 20-foot sailboat was capsized by a rogue wave shortly after midnight. A second person aboard was able to reach the shore.

A U.S. Coast Guard helicopter and search boat combed the area for hours before the body was discovered by a diver.
