We have been keeping up to date with the ongoing search for WWE star Shad Gaspard. Heartbreakingly we have heard that a body has washed up on shore at Venice beach were the former star went missing after being caught in a riptide

Lifeguards and divers have spent countless hours over the past two days to try locating Shad. On abc7 they are now reporting that a body has been located near to where he went missing.

There has been no formal identification at the moment so we cannot confirm that the body found is Shad Gaspard at this time, but it is very likely.

After being contacted by LAPD early on Wednesday morning, the Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the area near Lifeguard Tower 26 at Venice Beach.

Gaspard went missing while trying to save his 10-year-old son from the water. His son was thankfully rescued and did not need hospital attention. In his efforts to save his son Gaspard was tragically swept away by the water.

Once a formal identification has taken place, we will update this ongoing story.
