Body ID'd as Missing NJ Swimmer



    Meeting Veterans’ Special Needs in Hospice

    Authorities have identified a body as the New Jersey teenager who disappeared last week after getting caught in a rip current.


    Bradley Beach Police Chief Leonard Guida told the Asbury Park Press a family friend identified the body as Naisere Nelson.

    An official identification is pending an autopsy on Wednesday.     

    The 15-year-old's body was seen floating beneath the Ocean Avenue Bridge in Avon before 5:30 p.m. Tuesday.     

    The bridge is about 10 miles south of Bradley Beach. That's where the Neptune Township High School sophomore was last seen swimming with friends before he was pulled out to sea on Thursday.
