GREENWOOD, S.C. (AP) - The body of a man who disappeared after jumping off a boat into a South Carolina lake has been found after six days of searching.

The Greenwood County Coroner’s Office said in a news release that 44-year-old Steve Grigg II was found Thursday night not far from where he was last seen on Lake Greenwood.

Authorities say Grigg was with friends on the lake on May 27 when he dove in and didn’t surface.

Dive teams from a number of counties along with helicopters and specialized equipment searched for Grigg for days about 2 miles (3 kilometers) downstream from the U.S. 221 bridge over the lake.

Grigg’s body has been sent for an autopsy.
