ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. – St. Johns County Sheriff's Office said crews recovered a body Monday afternoon believed to be that of a paddleboarder who was last seen on Sunday.

Kenton Miller, 59, went paddleboarding in the area of Ocean Trace Road on St. Augustine Beach.

His wife contacted the Sheriff's Office late Sunday night when he did not return home. The Sheriff's Office called the U.S. Coast Guard.

Miller's 2015 Ford F-150 was found on the beach at Ocean Trace Road, but Miller and his paddleboard were not located at that time.

The body believed to be Miller's was discovered Monday about 7 miles south of the Ocean Trace Ramp. Crews also located a paddleboard.

The Sheriff's Office said a positive identification of the body will be determined by the District Medical Examiner's Office.
