The body of a missing boater has been found in Lake Shipp near Winter Haven.
Authorities found David Michael Eldridge's body near the middle
of the lake about Monday night. The 48-year-old Lakeland man had
been reported missing Sunday night.
An autopsy will be performed.
Winter Haven police say Eldridge went boating with friends
Sunday afternoon.
Friends say Eldridge's boat was behind two other boats as the
group traveled through a canal from Lake May to Lake Shipp. The
friends called police after they made it to a boat ramp but
Eldridge never arrived.
Divers from the Polk County Sheriff's Office and the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission searched for the missing
man.
