The body of a missing Davenport man has been recovered and identified in Florida. Forty-nine-year-old Mark Polaschek, a financial advisor, had been missing since Friday.
He had failed to return after going out on a solo trip on his sailboat offshore of Key Largo. His wife said he was an inexperienced boater. The U.S. Coast Guard found the body on Monday.
Polaschek’s identity was confirmed Wednesday using dental records. Polaschek, his wife and 6-year-old son were in Florida on vacation. Police say they found no obvious signs of foul play on board the boat.
