KINGSTOWN, St. Vincent (AP) _ Authorities in St. Vincent and the Grenadines found the body of an American tourist on Friday who had disappeared in the Caribbean Sea during a snorkeling trip a day earlier.

The coast guard found the body of Wade Eve, 30, a business consultant from Georgia, in waters 80 feet deep off the northwestern coast of St. Vincent, said police spokesman Sgt. Jonathan Nichols. Police did not know Eve's hometown.

Eve was among a group of eight Americans who had gone snorkeling Thursday from a charter boat off the north coast of St. Vincent, police said. His companions said they lost sight of him while they were all in the water, police said.
