MORGANTON, N.C. (AP) - Search crews have recovered the body of a 17-year-old who disappeared while swimming in a Burke County reservoir.

Local media outlets report searchers found the body of Rayden Lynn Biddix on Friday.

According to the sheriff’s office Biddix had gone swimming with a friend in a reservoir and had gone some distance from shore. Investigators say Biddix over-exerted himself and was unable to return to shore. They also said the friend tried to help Biddix, but couldn’t.

Rescue crews and law enforcement from several agencies searched the reservoir until late Thursday. They resumed the search Friday morning and recovered Biddix’s body about 11 a.m.
