A body found floating in the ocean off Island Beach State Park Saturday is that of a French Man who disappeared in rip currents, according to state officials.
Guilhot went missing shortly before Noon Friday while swimming with friends in an unauthorized section of beach. It apparently was his first time swimming in the ocean.
A friend tried to rescue Guilhot, but he slipped under the 2-and-3 foot waves. The Coast Guard searched for him for six hours Friday.
A fisherman spotted a body floating in the water Saturday about a quarter mile from where Guilhot was first reported missing.
