BULLOCH COUNTY, Ga. -- Authorities have found the body of a Jenkins County man who drowned in the Ogeechee river Sunday.
Johnny Lockett's body was found by a dive team after around 24 hours of searching the river.
Officials say Lockett, 51, couldn't swim well and had been drinking, but they aren't sure how much he had to drink.
The river was up from the recent rain and a strong current when Lockett went in.
Officials say his body has been sent to be autopsied.
