The campsite is in a remote section of the preserve. Barone was placed in an airboat by her husband, who then set out to get help.

There did not appear to be signs of foul play, the sheriff’s office said.

Barone’s husband told sheriff’s deputies that his wife suffered from unidentified medical conditions.

The Miccosukee Police Department and National Park Service is assisting in the ongoing investigation.
