The U.S. Coast Guard recovered a body beneath the Sunshine Skyway bridge Wednesday, thought to be that of a man who jumped off the main span Saturday night.

Passing boaters saw the body about 11:30 a.m. on the rocks under the first pier north of the main channel, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office said.

The man's identity was withheld Wednesday, pending notification of his family.
