Crews recovered the body of a 17-year-old Wednesday evening, June 2, 2021, who went missing while trying to swim across the Chattahoochee River, Channel 2 Action News reported.
Cobb and Roswell investigators searched into Tuesday evening before returning to the area. The Cobb police underwater search and recovery team led the search efforts Wednesday, the department said.
During search efforts Tuesday, aerial video showed a rescue boat speeding through a wide, fast-moving section of the river as crews searched for the boy. Though it’s not known what caused the teen to go under the water, Barner said the river’s currents are strong, even for skilled swimmers.
