NJ State Police and the U.S. Coast Guard are investigating the connection between a woman reported missing late Wednesday night and a body found Thursday morning off Staten Island.
The U.S. Coast Guard said a call was received by Monmouth County 911 around 11 p.m. The call led to an all-night search of Raritan Bay between Keansburg and Great Bay Park with two helicopters and a boat crew.
Personnel aboard one of the helicopters spotted a body just before 7 a.m. Thursday morning in the park's marina, according to the Coast Guard. An FDNY team recovered the body and pronounced the individual dead.
NYPD said the medical examiner will determine a cause of death and identify the body.
State Police Trooper Brandi Slota said troopers are investigating the case but declined to disclose details.

What would happen to NJ if we were attacked by nuclear weapons?
We used NUKEMAP by Alex Wellerstein
to see what would happen if a nuclear warhead hit New York, Philadelphia, Washington or New Jersey.
The models show what would happen in aerial detonation, meaning the bomb would be set off in the sky, causing considerable damage to structures and people below; or what would happen in a ground detonation, which would have the alarming result of nuclear fallout. The models do not take into account the number of casualties that would result from fallout.
