CAPTIVA ISLAND, Fla. (AP) - A 65-year-old man is dead after falling off a boat.

Matlacha Pine Island Fire Capt. Dave Tyrell says another boater called 911 to report a possible missing boater on Friday afternoon. He told the News-Press of Fort Myers (https://newspr.es/1QIj96s ) the boaters saw a pontoon boat with no one on board and they reported it because they were curious.

A helicopter crew from the Lee County Sheriff’s Office spotted the man’s body around 5 p.m. Friday. It was unclear how long the body had been in the water.

The man’s name was not immediately available. No further details were released.
