#nc4BREAKING: MISSING SWIMMER FOUND DEAD
A heartbreaking update- the body of 23-year-old Christopher Schofield has been found.
After four days of searching, crews found him around 4:30 p.m. Saturday.
Schofield's body was found in the water about 1,000 feet upstream from Kittatinny Point, about 1.5 miles downstream from where he was last seen.
BREAKING: CORONER CALLED TO DELAWARE RIVER
We just got confirmation that the coroner has been called to the Delaware River.
Crews from East Penn have been searching for 23-year-old Christopher Schofield, who went missing Tuesday night after swimming with two other individuals.
He was last spotted near Kittatinny Point in Hardwick Township, New Jersey.
According to the National Park Service, they were not wearing life jackets. Schofield was allegedly caught by a current in the river.
The two other people he was with, were located.

Pocono Mountains... Unfortunately too many times people fail to realize the dangers of the river, streams and mountains in our area. Much respect to our first responders who have been out there for so many hours risking treacherous currents to bring this family peace.
Just glad they found him if it is him. That way his family has some peace of mind to lay him to rest properly
To me swimming in the river is a deadly mistake so many people do. The under current is stronger than you are. I taught my kids and grandkids not to swim in the river anywhere. Don't listen to your friends "it will be fine" it normally isn't. Know a few people that died in there. Respect it and stay away. Sorry we lost another person to the river.
My daughter was with 3 others years back and 1 boy got tangled in the rope that they had all their tubes tied together. He went under and was gone. Devastating day for everyone. Lost a very special guy! 💔 The river is no place to swim in.
I’m so sorry 🙏💔
So sorry to hear, at least he's been found. I wish people would just stay out of Delaware River the just don't know how dangerous it can be!
The thrill is not worth it. He has his whole life ahead of him. Stay safe people
😥 so sad. Prayers for the family
