The search for the plane that never made it to Cedar Key after leaving Brooksville Sunday has been suspended. 65-year-old Jasper Jerrels, his teenage son Dylan and Hue Singletary, 60 had left Sunday and the last contact was shortly after 11 am on Sunday. A body was found near the area but has not been identified.

The largest cruise ship to dock in Cuba will be leaving from the Port of Tampa. The Carnival Cruise ship “Paradise” will set sail starting in June.

A Tampa man who called police and told them he was lost in Hillsborough River State Park set off a ground and air search yesterday but it turns out that the story wasn’t true. Rufus Buckner lied to police about his name and what he was actually doing in the park. He’s under arrest on drug charges and is barred from all Florida state parks.
