CELINA, Tenn. – Crews recovered the body of a father who drowned on Dale Hollow lake over the weekend. The man was swimming with his son in the lake Saturday afternoon.

Clay County Emergency Management Agency Director Natalie Boone said crews returned to the lake Monday morning. They were searching in an area near the Kentucky state line and Trooper Island. The man’s body was recovered Monday afternoon. Crews were using sonar and divers in the water. They had also had assistance from surrounding counties. The man’s name has not been released.
