Kayakers discover body near Goodland Bridge
Collier County sheriff’s deputies are trying to identify a man whose body was found off of Marco Island on Tuesday.
Around 4:15 p.m., kayakers about a half-mile off coast from the Goodland Bridge called authorities about a floating body. Investigators who recovered the body said it was a white man appearing to be about 50 years old, said Jamie Mosbach, a spokeswoman for the Sheriff’s Office.
Nothing about the man indicated foul play, Mosbach said, but the condition of the body did not allow investigators to make an immediate identification.
No furthers details about the death investigation were immediately available.
