A Blountstown resident was found in the Apalachicola River Monday morning, near the area where a boating accident took place.
Jefferie Rector, 28, had been missing since Saturday afternoon after he and his passenger, 29-year-old Mark Hamilton of Marianna were thrown from the 14-foot aluminum boat they had borrowed from a relative of Rector’s.
Two fisherman fishing near the Jackson County Port Authority found the body. Hamilton was rescued by Havana resident Larry Hooper, who was also boating on the river. Hamilton suffered only minor injuries.
