ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. - Authorities say the U.S. Coast Guard has recovered the body of a northeast Florida man who went missing while paddle boarding over the weekend.

The St. Johns County Sheriff's Office told The Florida Times-Union on Monday that 59-year-old Kenton Miller's pickup was found at a St. Augustine Beach boat ramp after his wife reported him missing Sunday night.

The sheriff's office says Miller's body and paddle board were located about seven miles south of the boat ramp.
