The body of a swimmer who disappeared Sunday near Howell Point on the Eastern Shore, was recovered by the Maryland Natural Resources Police Monday.

Brandon M. Greene, 21, of Edgewood, was reported missing shortly before 2 p.m. on Sunday, authorities said. The boaters with whom he was traveling had stopped off Howell Point in Kent County to go swimming when they noticed he was missing.

Boat crews from Coast Guard Station Still Pond in Kent County, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland Natural Resources Police and Kent County Fire Rescue and helicopters from the Maryland State Police and Coast Guard Station Atlantic City, N.J., joined in the search of 80 square miles over nine hours.

Greene's body was taken to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for an autopsy, according to police.
