OAK BLUFFS, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Mass. State Police say a body matching that of a missing swimmer has finally been found after days of searching on Martha's Vineyard. Brothers Tavaughn and Tavaris Bulgin jumped off the Jaws Bridge between Oak Bluffs and Edgartown on Sunday night.

The body of Tavaris Bulgin was found on Monday, but Tavaughn had been the subject of an extensive search since his disappearance Sunday night. State Police say a body matching Tavaughn's description was found Thursday morning by a local shell fisherman on the western edge of Sengekontacket Pond. Police are still investigating and were on scene as of Thursday afternoon.

The brothers were seasonal guest workers from Clarendon, Jamaica, and were working at Nomans Restaurant in Oak Bluffs.

The bridge is a very popular spot for summer tourists and locals to jump into the water, despite posted signs.

A GoFundMe has been set up to help the Bulgin family take their sons back to Jamaica for burial.
