Body of Rhys Dervan, 56, found Monday evening

ORANGE CITY, Fla. – Officials found the body of a 56-year-old man who they say died while he was scuba diving Monday at Blue Spring State Park.

The Volusia County Sheriff's Office said Rhys Dervan was diving with his 16-year-old son. They surfaced together, but Dervan went back down around 3:30 for a final dive to an underwater cavern about 120 feet below the surface. He never came back up.

The VCSO dive team deployed into the water at 6:47 p.m. to assist in the search. They found Dervan's body a short time later.

Officials said an autopsy will be done to confirm the cause of death.

No other details were immediately released.
