ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) — A man missing in Lake Hartwell on the South Carolina-Georgia state line has been found dead.

Ryan Herring with the Anderson County Technical Rescue Team told news outlets that 25-year-old Martin Acevedo of Pendleton was found in 137 feet (42 meters) of water Wednesday afternoon.

Acevedo had been missing since he and another man were thrown from a 19-foot (6-meter) bass boat by a wave on the lake Sunday night. The other man made it back to the boat.

Anderson County Deputy Coroner Don McCown ruled Acevedo’s death a drowning and said his body showed no other sign of injuries.
