TAMPA -- The body of a Pinellas Park man was discovered in the water of Tampa Bay Wednesday morning around 9:30 a.m. 

Officials have identified the man as 28-year-old Ryan Andrew Mogensen of Pinellas Park. Mogensen had been reported as missing by his family Monday and his vehicle was located at the top of the Skyway Bridge.
