The 40 year old Fairbanks man, who had been the subject of area wide search in ocean waters
between Fort Myers and Key West, Florida, was found dead near Cuba.
The body of Jay Rydberg was discovered, near his 39 foot boat, which had become grounded
east of Havana.
That's according to local media reports.
Earlier this month, the U.S. Coast Guard received a distress radio beacon from Rydberg's
boat, about 30 miles north of Key West.
Coast Guard officials say Rydberg had left Fort Myers, and never arrived in Key West, as he
was scheduled to do.
