FORT PICKENS — Authorities say the body of a missing 62-year-old fisherman has washed ashore near Fort Pickens.

The Pensacola News Journal reports the body of Todd W. Wooley Sr. was found by a passer-by Friday night. Florida Fish and Wildlife Official Lt. Doug Berryman says Wooley was still wearing his gear and his fishing line was still in the water. It’s unclear how he fell from his boat. The boat washed ashore near Panama City on Saturday.

Wooley’s wife reported him missing to federal wildlife officials when he failed to return from a fishing trip Friday night.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating. A cause of death has not yet been determined.
