Crystal River, Florida -- Researchers need help finding a missing manatee.

"Brodie" was tagged by The Sea to Shore Alliance and Dauphin Island Sea Lab last August and researchers have been tracking his movements. But the equipment used to keep an eye on Brodie stopped transmitting on April 12.

Based on his movements, researchers think Brodie might be near Crystal River.

Anyone who sees a manatee with a tracking device tethered by a belt just above its tail is asked to call the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at 1-888-404-FWCC.
