SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. (AP) -- Authorities say a 22-year-old metro Atlanta man has been found dead after he apparently drowned while trying to swim across the Chattahoochee River.

The Georgia Department of Natural Resources identified the man as Girona L. Pye of Woodstock. Sgt. Mike Barr of the DNR says his body was recovered Sunday morning.

Barr says that Pye vanished beneath the river waters Saturday while he was on an outing with friends. Witnesses told investigators he was trying to swim across the river with a friend when Pye appeared to get tired and went under without resurfacing.

The DNR says no foul play is suspected in the drowning, but alcohol may have been a factor.
