Two Missing After Diving Incident at Eagles Nest Sink, Feared Dead
WEEKI WACHEE – Officials are investigating the disappearance of two divers at Eagles Nest Sink in the Chassahowitzka Wildlife Management Area this morning, and there are unconfirmed reports that both victims may have been found deceased.
The search began last night after RNRF received information that rescue divers were being dispatched to search for two missing individuals. The Sheriff’s Office would not provide further details into the search.
Fire Rescue Officials say they were released early this morning and that investigators with the Sheriff’s Office were still working the scene.
One witness tells RNRF that he assisted with driving one of the victim’s relatives to Eagles Nest Sink just before 3:00 a.m. this morning. We are not releasing the names of the victims at this time.
Eagles Nest Sink is the same cave that claimed the life of a father and son in a 2013, Christmas Day diving trip. The bodies of Darrin Spivey and his son Dillon Sanchez were located at the same day at varying depths. Darrin’s body was discovered at 127’ below the surface and Dillion at just 67’.
We will continue to bring more on this story as it develops.
