I have seen them reported from Fla before. Its a very rare occurance, something along the lines of a ten year occurance from what I was reading. There were I believe only 2 mushrooms found in the case I'm referring to. Its is generally accepted that the further north you go the more abundant the morels become, florida just ain't very north ya know I would think temp fluctuations would have something to do with it? Maybe the ground needs to freeze in the winter or maybe they need to atleast experiance a prolonged temp drop(winter of some kind), I dunno, thats just my guess. They are a spring loving mushroom only, and floridas spring is almost non-exsistent, it just goes straight to summer down there.
The story of fla morels was on the morel mushroom hunting club site I think. I am a paying member over there so I'll see if I can find it and get permission to share it.
