DNR finds body in Lake Marion

A diver with the Department of Natural Resources located a body around 7:30 a.m.Friday in Lake Marion, where they've been searching for a Timmonsville man who went missing Thursday, according to Capt. Robert McCullough.

The man set out about noon Wednesday with his 18-year-old son on a fishing trip. McCullough says the boat encountered trouble and the men went into the water.

The younger man was able to get a life jacket out of


the boat and was rescued, but his father disappeared in the water.

Authorities didn't immediately identify the men.
