MIDDLE TOWNSHIP - The Southern Regional Medical Examiner's Office confirms that a body found off the coast of Wildwood on Sunday is the body of missing Middle Township police officer Jason Sill.

Sill, 39, of Cape May Court House, was last seen taking his boat out from Pier 47 Marina on the morning of Aug. 27. His unmanned boat was discovered off the Wildwood coast later that night with the keys still in the ignition.

New Jersey State Police led a multi-agency search for Sill. On Sunday, the United States Coast Guard recovered the body of an unidentified male floating in the water. A tattoo was located on the body that matched Sill.

A medical examination performed on the body confirmed today that it was Sill. The cause and manner of death is still undetermined pending a further investigation.
