The Collier County Sheriff's Office reports that a small plane owned by Jose Wejebe crashed into a field around 5 p.m. Friday, shortly after taking off from an Everglades City airpark.

One body was recovered from the wreckage. A medical examiner still has to officially confirm the identity, but investigators believe it was Wejebe.

The Cuban-born angler hosted "Spanish Fly," a saltwater fishing show on the Outdoor Channel and formerly ESPN.
