The Bay County Sheriff’s Office, with the assistance of FWC and the United States Coast Guard, recovered the body of a white male earlier this week from the rocks at the jetties inside St. Andrew State Park.
The body has been identified as that of Jonathan Lee Sampson, age 30. Sampson had been reported to the Panama City Beach Police Department as missing. He was last seen on October 29, 2021. His body was turned over to the Medical Examiner for autopsy.
The BCSO is working with the Panama City Police Department on this case. Additional information will be released as the investigation continues.
