OVIEDO, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say they've found the body of the second boater who went missing this past weekend on Lake Jesup in central Florida.

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission reports that 26-year-old Charles T. Jackson's body was found floating in the lake Friday about halfway between Black Hammock and Bird Island in about 6 feet of water. He and 30-year-old Jason M. Cobb went missing early Saturday when they took a 15-foot boat onto the lake.

FWC investigators say the men were likely ejected from their boat shortly after 1:30 a.m. Saturday. A friend found their boat empty about 12 hours later.

Cobb's body was found Wednesday. Officials say there were no apparent signs of trauma to either body.
