LONG BRANCH, N.J. — The remains of a missing kite surfer from New York have been recovered on a New Jersey beach.

Officials say the body of 44-year-old Sinisa Bjelajac, of Brooklyn, was located Wednesday near Seven Presidents Park in Long Branch.

Authorities searched coastal waters from Sandy Hook to Coney Island, New York, before suspending the search on Aug. 5.
