Pinellas County deputies identify body found in water as missing swimmer

PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – Deputies with the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office say the body of one of the two missing swimmers they’ve been searching for has been found.

Deputies recovered a body in the channel Monday afternoon about three miles away from Egmont Key.

The body was later identified as 27-year-old Andrew Charles Dillman from New York.

Dillman went missing last week with 21-year-old Jie Luo, a foreign exchange student from China. Investigators say a current pulled them away after they jumped off a boat for a swim.
