LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -

Orange County deputies say they have recovered the body of missing British businessman, Simon Latham.

Deputies said Latham, 43, was visiting from South Korea to attend a conference at an Orlando hotel with his brother-in-law and about a dozen other people. He was last seen leaving the lounge at the Caribe Royale Resort in Orlando at 1 a.m. Thursday.

Latham had not contacted his family and had not retrieved his belongings from the hotel and also missed his flight back to South Korea at 7 a.m. on Friday.

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.
