Body found at La Brea port


POLICE have reported that a body was discovered at the port of La Brea on Friday.

Ann Frederick told Newsday police told her about the find, and she believes the body could be that of her 16-year-old grandson Iverson.

Thomas is presumed to have drowned at Flower Pot Beach, Pointe-a-Pierre, on Tuesday.

Reports are that Thomas and a friend went for a swim about 10 am on Tuesday. When Thomas got into difficulties, the friend tried to help him, then swam ashore to alert passers-by.

Meanwhile Thomas disappeared.
