Body of Destin Man Recovered from Water

Voiced by Amazon Polly

The body of a Destin man was located this morning by the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office Dive Team in waters off the west side of the Destin Bridge, not far from where he was last seen Wednesday evening.

The 20 year old Brazilian, who was unable to swim, was apparently last seen by friends around the 8 p.m. time frame. His personal property was still on the beach. Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office deputies were called to the scene to assist Eglin Range Patrol around 1:30 a.m. this morning and the Destin Coast Guard also joined in the search.
