Drowning Search Over

The search for a missing Jefferson County man who disappeared in a local pond is over.

Jefferson County authorities confirmed Tuesday morning they have found the body of 22-year-old Gabriel Hernandez-Jimenez.

On Monday deputies worked to remove vegetation to give dive crews more visibility as they searched for the victim.

Deputies say early Sunday afternoon Jimenez and several of his friends were fishing in the water with nets. They say when he tried to retrieve his net he disappeared in the deeper section of the water.

The body will be taken to Tallahassee for an autopsy.
