WHITE LAKE, N.C. (AP) — Searchers have recovered the body of a man who went missing while tubing on White Lake over the weekend.
Bladen County authorities tell local media outlets that the body of 36-year-old Kendrick Lavor Dials of Florence, South Carolina was recovered on Monday morning.
Officials say Dials was riding in an inner-tube behind a boat when he fell off the tube and disappeared in the water on Saturday. Crews searched for the missing man using sonar, K-9 units, a drone and a helicopter.
The lake is located about 40 miles south of Fayetteville.
