EGMONT KEY, Fla. (AP) - A 63-year-old man is missing after he and three others jumped off a small fishing boat that was taking on water.
The men were fishing about eight miles of Egmont Key in the Gulf of Mexico on Sunday morning when a wave flooded the small boat. Crews from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the U.S. Coast Guard searched for the missing man until about 4 p.m. Sunday when inclement weather moved in.
Officials say the missing swimmer is Enrique Rodriguez of Avon Park.
The Tampa Bay Times (http://bit.ly/1rBHCOj ) reports a passing boater picked up the other three men and took them to shore. They were treated for non-life threatening injuries.
The boat sank and hasn't been located.
