Florida – A 9-year-old boy who went missing along with an adult man while swimming off a beach in the Florida Panhandle was found death.
According to deputies, they found the boy in the surf off Panama City Beach.
The boy and the 28-year-old man were last seen Saturday evening while swimming in the water.
