TheBayNet.com is working to verify this information with the Maryland Natural Resources Police.

They were brothers from Woodbridge, VA.

Authorities found the body of one man and were searching for second man Sunday after their boat overturned in the Potomac River in Charles County.

Police say they were able to recover one of the two boaters Sunday afternoon.

According to police, the bodies have been taken to the medical examiners office in Baltimore for autopsies. A Coast Guard MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crew from Coast Guard Air Station Atlantic City, New Jersey, is also joining the search.

The United States Coast Guard says a nearby tug boat crew called 911 after observing a boat capsize, and two men enter the water.

Crews plan on continuing their search until dark.

With the water temperature near 50 degrees and wind gusting to 20 miles per hour, "searching conditions are really frightful", Thomson said.
