Man drowns in Lake Eufaula

The body of a missing boater who disappeared Sunday in Lake Eufaula has been found.

Divers and rescue crews spent Monday in the hot sun searching the lake near Hardridge Creek.

A man went overboard around lunchtime on Sunday.

Officials say the man in his 50's went overboard after dropping his family off at the campgrounds.

Officials have not released the name of the victim.

They have said he was not wearing a life jacket and he could not swim.

“The visibility is only a few feet but we've had a great response from divers from Henry, Houston and the Dothan police were out yesterday with their dive team,” said Paul Brown of Henry Co. EMA Director

Divers found the man's body about an hour ago.

The investigation continues.
