Body found in Jupiter Farms near area of search for missing firefighter

The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office is reporting that a body has been found in Jupiter Farms near the area where rescuers were searching for a missing Broward County firefighter.

The discovery was made Tuesday afternoon.

James Von Minden was last seen Friday night after his truck hit a tree near the intersection of Randolph Siding Road and Alexander Run.

Authorities had a running theory that the firefighter may have suffered a head injury in the accident and may have walked off disoriented or have been injured.

While the body was found in the area of search for Minden, investigators have not identified the victim.

The president of the Broward County Professional Firefighters and Paramedics Association, however, confirmed that the body is James Von Minden.
