ANDERSON, S.C. (AP) — The body of a man missing for several days has been found in a South Carolina lake.
The Anderson County Coroner's Office told local media outlets that the body of 34-year-old Oleg Odemchuk of Anderson was found in Lake Hartwell on Saturday.
Deputy Coroner Charlie Boseman says Odemchuk had been missing since Aug. 16.
Boseman says the victim and his brother had been on their boat when they got into the water. The boat began to drift away and they tried to swim after it. The brother made it to shore but Odemchuk began struggling and went under the water.
Emergency crews and the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources used sonar equipment to try to find him Friday. The body was spotted in the same area late Saturday morning.
