CENTREVILLE, Ala. (AP) - The body of a 13-year-old boy who apparently drowned in the Cahaba River while on a weekend trip has
been recovered.

Bibb County Coroner Downey McGee said a diver found the body of
Camenron Knowles, a student at Triwill Portacras School in Green
Pond, at about 11 a.m. Monday.

Authorities said Knowles, from Etowah County, was visiting the
Cahaba Wildlife Refuge on Saturday.

McGee said Knowles was at the river swimming with three friends around 4:30 p.m. Saturday when they became tired and decided to return to shore, but he did not make it.
