Missing paddleboarder found safe in Key Biscayne


A missing paddleboarder was found safe Friday afternoon in Key Biscayne after an hours-long search.

Local 10 reported that the unidentified woman had been last seen near the Miami Seaquarium and rented the board at around 11:30 a.m.

Two women had been watching her, but lost sight of her. Her board washed up on Hobie Island Beach Park, and it raised even more concern. Rescue crews, including divers, were on the scene for a few hours.

She later turned up walking around on land, according to a Tweet from Local 10 reporter Christian De La Rosa.

It is unclear why she ditched the paddleboard.
