    After two days of searching the coast off of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea and Pompano Beach for a missing diver, BSO Marine Divers found the man's body Sunday afternoon.

    The diver has been identified as Antonio Almeida, 60, of Deerfield Beach.

    Almeida was among a group of Scuba divers and snorkelers who went out to a shallow reef aboard a commercial diver vessel Lady Go Diver, according to Arilton Pavan, who runs Dixie Divers, the boat's owner.

    Pavan said the man was a local resident and an experienced diver who has made two or three previous trips with his company.
