This is the best summary I could come up with:


Search teams looking for a missing diver off the Florida coast recovered the lifeless body of a different man, the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office said.

Teams were combing the waters after a West Palm Beach resident went missing Sunday while freediving when they discovered the body of a man believed to be around 50 years old.

"The body does not appear to have been in the water for an extended period of time," the sheriff's office said in a Facebook statement on Monday.

The discovery was made as teams searched the waters for a freediver who went missing near the site of the Halsey shipwreck, about 13 miles southeast of the inlet.

The 435-foot-long ship was traveling from Corpus Christi, Texas to New York on May 6, 1942, when it was struck by a torpedo and sank, according to Fishing Status.

Florida Freedivers, a dive shop in North Palm Beach, identified the missing diver as Virgil Price, a member of their team.
