CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) - The body of a swimmer who had gone missing off Cape Canaveral has been recovered.
Brevard County Fire-Rescue reports that the search for the 23-year-old man started Tuesday morning and ended several hours later. Lifeguards began by wading through the waves after a woman started screaming for help. Firefighters and a sheriff's helicopter eventually joined the search.
Florida Today ( ) reports that the ocean current was drifting northward but that the body was found not too far where the man was last seen thrashing in the water.
