LAFOLLETTE, Tenn. (FOX19) - Officials found the body of a Cincinnati 24-year-old in a Tennessee lake Saturday afternoon after he reportedly jumped off of a boat.

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency reported that rescue squads searched Norris Lake in Campbell County and recovered the body of Kevin Beyersdofer at 3:34 p.m., around 24 hours after he was last seen.

Authorities say Beyersdofer jumped into the water from the top deck of a pontoon boat Friday afternoon and never resurfaced.

Rescue squads utilized side scan sonar verified by an underwater remote operated vehicle to locate Beyersdofer’s body.
