PLANT CITY — An abandoned boat led Hillsborough sheriff's deputies to find a body in a lake at Ed Medard Park on Thursday.

The man was seen casting off sometime between 6 and 7 a.m. Hours later, a boater found the abandoned boat around 10 a.m.

The park ranger called the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, which sent divers to search the lake and find the body. The Sheriff's Office said there were no signs of foul play.

Deputies have identified the man but did not release that information. Deputies have not yet found next of kin.
