Foot found on beach belongs to missing boater

MARTIN COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - The human foot found on a Martin County beach on New Year's Day was confirmed Thursday to belong to a missing Jupiter boater, said sheriff's spokeswoman Christine Christofek.

The DNA profiles of the foot matched the DNA samples from the toothbrush and hairbrush of Dominic Porcaro, Christofek said. He had been missing since December 19 after his boat washed ashore north of the Juno Beach Park Pier.
