The body of a missing boater on Fort Loudoun Lake has been recovered.
Investigating Officer Jeff Roberson reports that at 9:45 p.m., the body of a missing 18-year-old male was recovered by divers from the Knox County Rescue Squad.
He was identified as Joshua Armon Davis of Knoxville.
TWRA officers and Investigators located the victim by use of a Remote Operated Vehicle.
The victim fell overboard from a boat that was adrift in the Little Turkey Creek area of Fort Loudoun Lake. There were two other occupants on the boat at the time of the incident.
