Family and loved ones are mourning the loss of a 17-year-old Cape Coral teen who went missing at Blind Pass Beach and whose remains were found days later.

WINK News reporter Asha Patel contacted his soccer coach at North Fort Myers High School, who said he is talking with Isaac Breese’s family right now, making sure they are ready for him to talk to WINK about Isaac’s “very dynamic and impactful story.”

Breese went missing last Tuesday while swimming with three other friends off Blind Pass Beach in Sanibel. One teen swam back to shore and two others were rescued.

Breese’s remains were found on Thursday, and it’s hitting the community hard, especially for his loved ones, friends and the soccer groups he played for.

The Pelican Bay Community Park soccer field is where Breese played soccer with DBR Goal Keeper Academy.

DBR Goalkeeper Academy shared a post on Facebook remembering Breese, saying he was the nicest, most hardworking person and an inspiration to the younger generation.

Florida West FC also posted a photo of Isaac, saying it mourns the loss of the young player.

The City of Sanibel’s Public information officer told WINK News that after this tragic loss, they have posted signs at Blind Pass Beach that say, “No swimming, dangerous current.”

Patel reached out to the Lee County School District, and they responded to say they are offering counseling for students and staff.
