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 December 29th 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.
