According to the Marion County Florida Sheriff’s Office, the body of Sean Patrick Spiegel, 25 of Pace, who went missing during a dive with friends about 1:30 a.m. Saturday, was found after two days of searching by about a dozen divers, including members of the Marion County Sheriff’s Office Dive Team and other professionals.

Spiegel, a commercial dive student, was found 105 feet below the surface of the 40 Fathom Grotto in Northwest Marion County on Sunday at around 8:15 p.m.

On November 15 at approximately 3:46 a.m., the Marion County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call from The Grotto, located at 9487 NW 115 Avenue in Ocala, in reference to a missing diver.

Spiegel was staying at a log cabin at the 40 Fathom Grotto with Matthew James Berry, 22, of Attica, Mich.; Nicole Wilkerson, 23, of Brooksville; Doug Masters, 24, of St. Augustine; and William Sanders, 29, of Garnerville, N.Y., when the group decided to take a late-night dive.

According to a report by Deputy Francisco Perez of the Marion County Sheriff’s Department, Masters, Wilkerson, Spiegel and Berry put on their scuba gear and went diving, leaving Sanders behind for safety reasons. The four divers, with the aid of a rope, went under water and descended about 104 feet.
