Body found on Little Talbot Island
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Authorities have recovered a body from the shore of Little Talbot Island, not far from where a local swimmer disappeared Saturday evening.
A group of three men was out swimming when two of them starting having problems. A surfer nearby pulled one person to safety. When he went back for the second swimmer, he was gone.
Florida Fish & Wildlife spokesperson Karen Parker said a body came ashore this morning. Little Talbot Island is about a mile from Huguenot Park.
Authorities suspended the search for the missing swimmer on Sunday due to rough conditions at sea.
Authorities are working to identify the victim.
