Body Of Missing Diver Located

KEY LARGO, Fla. (AP) — Authorities in the Florida Keys believe they’ve found the body of a missing diver.

The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office reports that a body was found Friday afternoon inside the wreck of the USS Spiegel Grove, located about 6 miles off Key Largo.

A medical examiner will have to officially identify the body, but detectives believe it is 43-year-old Joseph Dragojevich.

Dragojevich reportedly went missing Thursday afternoon while diving around the sunken vessel.

Authorities have also recovered Dragojevich’s equipment and hope to determine what happened to him.
