The body of a popular Florida paddle boarder, affectionately known as "Capt. Jack Sparrow," was found Monday afternoon in a bay near the Gulf of Mexico, authorities said.
Joshua Hensley, 43, was found in King's Bay, according to the Citrus County Sheriff's Office. Hensley owned Big Foot Paddle Boards in Crystal River and was noted for dressing up as the fictional pirate, Capt. Jack Sparrow, of the "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie series, when he went paddle boarding, WTSP reported.
Park rangers notified deputies late Sunday when they noticed Hensley's vehicle was still in the Hunter Springs parking lot, according to WTVT. The Coast Guard then joined the search, while helicopters were also used, the television station reported.
