JUPITER, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a man who was diving off the east coast of Florida has been found dead.

The Palm Beach Post reports authorities were called to a report of an unresponsive diver in the waters off Jupiter late Thursday. The diver had been brought in by a dive boat and was pronounced dead at the scene. Authorities have not released the man's identity.

Palm Beach County Fire Rescue Capt. Albert Borroto says the dive boat crew told paramedics the man had been under water for an extended period of time. An official cause of death has not yet been released.
