Guam - Guam Fire Department search-&-rescue personnel pulled the lifeless body of one of two missing fishermen from the waters in Ipan, Talofofo this morning.  GFD Spokesperson Joey San Nicolas says the body was discovered around 10:45 about 100 meters from shore. 

The fisherman was found about 65 feet inside a channel. 

Family members of Henry Lowary and Paul Monkeyan have been gathered at the shore in Ipan, praying for the best.  The two men and a friend went spearfishing late Wednesday night but only one man returned to the shore safely.  The other two were swept out to sea from strong currents.  Officials are awaiting the positive identification of the body pulled from the water this morning. 

Meanwhile, search-&-recovery efforts continue for the other missing fisherman.
