A body washed up on a beach yesterday is believed to be that of a fisherman who went missing three weeks ago after a boat sank claiming the life of his uncle.
A search for Robert McLaughlin 'Jackie' (43) has been continuing since November 1 when the 26ft trawler 'The Jennifer' went down off Glengad Head on the north Donegal coast. The body of Edward Doherty 'Lisa' (65) was found close to where the boat sank.
Yesterday, a local woman out walking on the beach found the body of a man at Esky Bay, close to Malin Head.
DNA and dental tests will be carried out on the body to confirm its identity.
