Body found in Atlantic City believed to be missing man
A body found in Atlantic City bay has been tentatively identified as a man missing since November. Police were called to Arizona Avenue at 5:11 p.m. Tuesday for the report of a body found on the water’s edge, Sgt. Kevin Fair said. On Thursday, he said it was tentatively identified as Damon Malloy.
Malloy has been missing since Nov. 13, when police were called to Venice Park. Officers arrived to find Malloy yelling and behaving unusually, so they called for medical personnel, according to the report. As the officers approached, Malloy ran and jumped in the water off of Murray Avenue, and began to swim. Officers tried to follow, but lost sight of him. Based upon the height, weight and clothing, the body found Tuesday night is believed to be Malloy, Fair said. His family has been notified. A positive identification will come from the Medical Examiner’s Office after forensic testing.
