The Cape and Islands district attorney said Tuesday that a body found on the beach at Menemsha over the weekend has no connection to the sea scalloper that sank last month and left three New Bedford fishermen missing.

“I can confirm for you that the body is not one of the three fishermen who went missing,” Tara Miltimore, a media spokesman for Cape and Islands assistant district attorney Michael O’Keefe, told the Gazette.

Ms. Miltimore said the district attorney’s office had ruled out foul play, and could also confirm that the person was not from Martha’s Vineyard.

Beyond that, no further information would be released, she said.

Massachusetts state police detectives have been investigating since the body was found washed up on Menemsha beach late Saturday morning, prompting a daylong, inter-agency response.

A morning dog walker discovered the body on the beach at around 11 a.m. Saturday.

Coast Guard station Menemsha and Chilmark police were among those who responded.

Station Menemsha chief Justin Longval said the body was removed from the beach by around 2:30 p.m. and transported by Coast Guard to Woods Hole on the 47-foot motor lifeboat. There it was transferred to state police and the medical examiner’s office, he said.

The station chief said the transport was completed by approximately 4:30 Saturday afternoon.

“It was an all-day affair,” he said. Chilmark police later put out a press release, noting that the matter had been turned over to state police.

Few details have been made available beyond the fact that the person found was a white male.

Chief Longval said Saturday based on the condition of the body it had most likely been in the water for some time.

No one had been reported missing on the Vineyard, and there was initial speculation that there may have been a connection with the sea scalloper that sank 25 miles south of the Vineyard in rough seas on Nov. 24. Three fishermen lost at sea have still not been found.
