A Wewahitchka man lost his life in a boating accident this weekend.
62-year-old Ronald Turner went out cat fishing in the Florida River in Liberty County. He was last seen around 2:00 Friday afternoon.
His worried girlfriend called authorities around 6:00 Friday evening when he didn't return.
Liberty County search and rescue found Turner's body just south of where the Florida River feeds into the Apalachicola River.
He was wearing a life jacket but was stuck on a branch. Authorities found the boat a quarter mile away. They believe Turner hit the bank at a high rate of speed.
An autopsy is scheduled for Monday to determine the cause of death.
