EUFAULA, Ala. - The body of the third missing fisherman has been recovered, bringing a search that lasted five days and involved over 20 different agencies to a close.

Henry County Coroner Derek Wright identified the body as 51-year-old Keith Price of Henry County.

The other two men who were also killed in the fishing accident are 52-year-old Timothy Arnold Evans and 54-year-old John White, also are from Henry County.

Shortly after 10 a.m. on Monday, the boat that belonged to the three fishermen was located.

“This morning about 10:15, Georgia DNR was using their tow fish unit and found an image of a boat at the bottom of the lake,” Henry County Sheriff William Maddox said. “So we marked it and sent the divers down and it was the boat of the three fishermen.”

Currently emergency agencies are working to retrieve the boat, in hopes of finding answers.

“There are some clues, we are going to wait until we get the boat up and do an investigation and then we might can tell what happened,.” Maddox said.
