Body Found in Gulf Is Missing Fisherman

A body pulled from the Gulf this weekend has now been positively identified as that of a missing Taylor County man, 54-year-old Lonnie Ray Goff.

A spokesman with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission says a fisherman found Goff's body Saturday afternoon about 15 miles southeast of Carrabelle.

He and fishing buddy Jimmie White were reported missing back on October 2 when they failed to return home from a fishing trip.

Their boat was recovered last week; 67-year-old Jimmie White has still not been found.
