CLEARWATER, Fla. (WTXL) - A missing diver is found alive in Florida after spending nearly day in the water.

The Coast Guard in Saint Petersburg received a call Wednesday from the captain of a 25-foot dive boat reporting two missing divers who didn't resurface.

A 34-year-old man was found alive hours later, five miles southeast of the dive site.

On Thursday, the other driver was found alive, treading water and waving for help.

Both divers are okay.
