The body of a Brooklyn man who disappeared off the Rockaway coast has been found.

Anthony Bolden, 21, was swimming with a friend near Jacob Riis Park on Monday, when he was reportedly overwhelmed by the strong currents. Witnesses say he disappeared under the mighty waves.

The NYPD sent out boats and scuba teams to locate Holden on Tuesday and Wednesday. However it was a jogger who discovered the body and notified police on Thursday morning. Bolden’s mother later identified the corpse as that of her son.

Anthony Bolden would have celebrated his 22nd birthday on Saturday.
