CARLE PLACE, N.Y. (AP) - The son of a man who was reported missing after going for a swim in New York but later turned up in South Carolina has been charged with insurance fraud and filing a false report.
The Nassau County District Attorney's office says 22-year-old Jonathan Roth was arrested Monday. He was also charged with conspiracy to commit insurance fraud.
Roth has said he had nothing to do with the actions of his father, Raymond Roth.
The elder Roth vanished a week ago after a swim at Jones Beach, and his son reported him missing.
Authorities undertook a massive air and water search that cost thousands of dollars.
