Divers with St. Pete Fire Rescue have located the body of a man who went for a swim in a retention pond Wednesday night and never surfaced.
Police said the body of Bret Everett Beebe, 45, was found in Ruby Lake Friday afternoon. Beebe was last seen when he went swimming in the pond Wedesnday.
At least two witnesses reported seeing the man enter the pond, but did not see him come out. The initial call came in at 7:43 p.m. Wednesday.
One of the witnesses, a friend of the man, told officers that his friend was intoxicated and said he was going into the pond for a swim. He took off some of his clothes, leaving them on the bank before going into the water.
The man's clothing was recovered along with his wallet and ID.
