Clearwater, Fla.-(970 WFLA)-The Pinellas County Medical Examiner's Office has identified the body of a man found floating in the Gulf of Mexico by the crew of a fishing boat last week. The M.E. says it's the body of 40 year-old Jose Gabriel Fajardo of 15911 Misty Way in Tampa.

Fajardo was last seen alive September 15th when he told his cousin he was going to swim from one Clearwater Beach hotel to another.  Witnesses say Fajardo had been drinking before his swim.

Fajardo never made it to his destination, but was not reporting missing to Clearwater officers until 24 hours later.
