A man found floating in the Beaver River in Bridgewater had left home earlier in the day, but his family didn't report him missing until after his body was found, police said.

It's unclear where James DeMaria, 58, of Fallston had been, Patterson assistant police Chief David Stanislawski said Wednesday.

Family members told police they did not argue with DeMaria or have any problems with him, Stanislawski said. They reported him missing between 9 and 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, he said.

A boater spotted DeMaria's clothed body spotted floating at docks in Bridgewater about 7:30 p.m. DeMaria's body showed no signs of trauma, Stanislawski said.

A cause of death is pending the results of an autopsy, said Beaver County Coroner Teri Tatalovich-Rossi.
