Deputies say search for 9-year-old now recovery mission

Pinellas County deputies are now calling their search for a 9-year-old boy who hasn't been seen since Saturday afternoon a recovery mission.

Cameron J. Bullard was last seen around 3:20 Saturday afternoon at St. Pete Beach near the 18 th Avenue beach access.

Patrol deputies, Pinellas Marine Units, the US. Coast Guard, and Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation were involved in the search for the child by air, water, and also on land. Sunday afternoon, deputies said they believe Bullard was in knee-deep water when he was swept away by a current and drowned.

The Pinellas County sheriff said Cameron couldn't swim.

The currents were strong Sunday morning and boats were using sonar to scan the ocean floor.
