COLUMBIA COUNTY, GA--- A Columbia County dive team searching for a teen in Clark Hills Lake found his body Thursday evening.

Columbia County deputies say Elliott Rivers was on a boat between Petersburg and Lake Springs area of the lake on the Fourth of July. He fell off the boat when it made a sharp turn and he never came back up.

About 30 volunteer divers from Columbia County’s E.M.A. team searched the lake all day Thursday diving as far as 80 feet under Clark Hills Lake.
