Body found in Lake Erie identified as missing boater


HALDIMAND COUNTY, ON (WIVB) — Missing boater Giuseppe Reinhart has been declared deceased after his body was pulled out of Lake Erie Thursday.

37-year-old Reinhart’s boat washed ashore in Hamburg last week, sparking a 3-day search over Lake Erie.  Thursday morning, a fisherman spotted a body off the shore of Port Maitland and contacted Ontario Provincial Police. Police later identified the body as Reinhart’s.

Police say foul play is not suspected and the death is not being treated as suspicious.
