The Escampia County Mayor’s Office found the body of a woman near Innerarity Point and is awaiting word from the medical examiner’s office about identification.
Sheriff David Morgan said the corpse may be the corpse of a kayak who was reported missing after Hurricane Sally, but the Egyptian Statistical Office is awaiting confirmation.
Agneska Sobyragska, 45, was last seen in 16,000 blocks of Energy Point Road before disappearing.
Morgan initially announced during a press conference that two bodies had been found, but a spokeswoman later clarified that he had erred and only one woman had been found.
Authorities believe the boat that left shore on September 16 to recover his mother’s floating boat could be the first death linked to Sally in Florida, although his family hopes to find him alive.
Brandon William Nicholson, 27, was last seen at around 10:30 a.m. on September 16 after he left his home on Riola Place paddling on a 12-foot boat to retrieve his mother’s pontoon boat that broke apart during a storm.
The U.S. Coast Guard suspended its search for Nicholson after the crew was unable to find him.
Morgan also confirmed over the weekend that authorities believe that one person in Pensacola has died of carbon monoxide poisoning after running an indoor generator. The cause of death was not confirmed by the coroner.
