YANKEETOWN, Florida — The search continues for one of two fishermen who were reported overdue from a fishing trip.
Authorities say they recovered the body of 44-year-old Joseph Johns in Waccasassa Bay near Yankeetown in north Florida.
Crews from the U.S. Coast Guard and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission are still looking for 37-year-old Daniel Tingley.
The Tampa Bay Times (http://bit.ly/1pin9gP ) reports the men left early Saturday in a 12-foot boat. When they had not returned by Sunday afternoon, Johns' wife called the Coast Guard station in Yankeetown.
A helicopter crew spotted Johns' boat on Sunday night.
