SARASOTA COUNTY, FL (WFLA) -

A man who drowned off South Lido Beach in the Gulf of Mexico has been identified as Steeve A. Reserve, 19.

Reeves had been swimming with a friend off South Lido Beach around 6:30 p.m. Sunday evening. The friends became separated. Officials said Reeves became tired and was struggling to return to shore. The friend noticed Reeve's was going under the water and asking for help.

Waves from a nearby boat sent Reeve's under the water. His friend says he never came back up.

A search for Reeve's was conducted Saturday evening. Authorities said the body of the 19-year old was discovered approximately 200 yards off South Lido Beach Sunday morning.

The 19-year old black male was from Haiti. Officials said he came to the U.S. 4-6 months ago and had been staying with friends.
