ISLE OF WIGHT, VA (WWBT/AP) -

Months after two duck hunters went missing on the James River, both bodies have now been identified.

Crews recovered a body from the James River in James City County on March 9, less than a week after another body was recovered in Isle of Wight County. WAVY reports the body was positively identified as Kyle Englehart through fingerprint records.

Englehart and Austin Savage disappeared during a winter storm in January. Both men had ties to the Varina area.

Savage's body was found March 4 around 3 p.m. in the Rushmere area of Isle of Wight County. The cause of death was drowning. Englehart's cause of death has not been announced.

On Jan. 3, Savage and Englehart set out from the Jamestown Yacht Basin in a 16-foot boat. The boat was later found overturned. The trip happened during frigid temperatures when 5 to 10 inches of snow blanketed the region.
