Missing Boater Found

Two fisherwomen found his body Thursday evening.

This is certainly not the way the family of 54-year-old Ahmad Hussein wanted his search to end.

The Wakulla County Sheriff's Office says that around 5 o'clock two women fishing near the bayside marina found his body.

Crews spent nearly four days combing the Ochlockonee Bay.

Much of Hussein's family has been at the bay since Monday and as expected is taking the news pretty rough. He was last seen fishing in Wakulla County around noon Sunday, an area he regularly visited.

Hussein's body found about three quarters of a mile from where investigators found his boat on Monday. His family believes he may have been testing his boat on the water and for some reason ran into engine trouble.

Investigators plan to perform an autopsy on the body Friday morning.

Hussein is the owner of the Sahara Restaurant on Lafayette Street in Tallahassee.
