By The Associated Press
The body of a British businessman has been found in a retention pond at an Orlando-area resort.
Orange County Sheriff's Office spokesman Jeff Williamson says Simon Latham, 43, attended a conference at an Orlando hotel with his brother-in-law and about a dozen other people.
Latham was last seen in the Caribe Royale Resort lobby early Thursday. Williamson says the British citizen's brother-in-law reported him missing when he failed to join the group Friday morning for a 7 a.m. flight to South Korea, where Latham lived.
Latham's body was discovered around 8 a.m. Saturday in a retention pond on the resort property. Williamson says Latham's brother-in-law was walking around the property and called authorities when he spotted the body.
An autopsy is pending. Detectives do not suspect foul play.
