According to the Miami Herald, 40-year-old Jay Wesley Rydberg’s body was discovered by Cuban officials who informed the U.S. Coast Guard, which notified Rydberg’s family. The U.S. State Department confirmed that a boat reported missing May 14 had been found in Cuba with a body, but refused to identify the remains.
An emergency beacon from Rydberg’s 39-foot trimaran was detected by the Coast Guard May 14, and subsequently located during the search for him. Rydberg had been en route from Fort Myers to Key West at the time of his disappearance.
