Body of Missing Boater Found in Gibson Creek

The body of Daniel Favretto, 39, of Buena Vista Township, was recovered this morning by the New Jersey State Police Marine Bureau and T.E.A.M.S. Unit divers. The discovery was made in Gibson Creek (Estell Manor City, Atlantic County) about one half mile south of Gibson Landing, which is where the boat was put into the water.

Troopers using boat-towed side-scan SONAR located his body at 9:15 a.m. today and directed the agency's T.E.A.M.S. divers to the body. Mr. Favretto was recovered at 10:00 a.m. He was declared at the scene by a member of the medical examiner's office.

Daniel Favretto fell off the family's 15-foot Carolina Skiff yesterday morning around 11:00 a.m. He and his brother Carlo Favretto, 42, of Richland, were on the water to retrieve crab traps when Daniel, who was driving, fell overboard as the boat travelled across the water. Carlo was ejected onto the creek bank as the boat struck land, but he was not injured. Neither man was wearing a life jacket.

The accident is being investigated by Tpr. I Robert Frake of the State Police Atlantic City Station.
