Body of missing boater found in Clarks Hill Lake

MCCORMICK COUNTY, SC (WFXG) - The body of a 44-year-old missing man was found in Clarks Hill Lake Tuesday, according to the Georgia Department of Natural Resources.

Danny Bryers' body was recovered from the lake around 1 p.m. Tuesday, DNR officials said. The boat he was in before he went missing was spotted Monday night by rescue crews.

Three other people were on the boat with Bryers Saturday when an accident sent them all into the water, DNR officials said. Those three people were taken to the hospital to be treated for hypothermia.

Officials said the boat may have been overloaded, which could have caused it to capsize.
