King County sheriff's Sgt. Cindi West said the man could have landed in a wide area because he was wearing a wing suit with fabric under the arms to fly through the air.
He and two other skydivers were taking turns jumping from a chartered helicopter.
The other skydivers were waiting in the landing zone, but didn't see the jump. The pilot said the man jumped from an altitude of 6,500 feet.
West said the 29-year-old is from Lake City, Fla.
The owner of Skydive Palatka in Palatka, Fla., Art Shaffer, said he's a friend, Kurt Ruppert.
