PINEY FLATS, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee authorities are investigating the death of a man found in Boone Lake on Saturday.

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency says a fisherman located the body of a man in shallow water near a bass boat on the Watauga arm of Boone Lake in Sullivan County. The Kingsport Times-News (https://bit.ly/1GXrSHl ) reports the vessel sustained damage, but it was unclear whether it occurred before or after the boater was ejected.

The agency says the man was not wearing a life jacket when his body was recovered. Investigators have not yet determined the time of the accident.

Rescue crews searched the shoreline for other occupants but have no knowledge of anyone else onboard.
