Search and dive teams recovered the body Thursday morning of a man that drowned at Perry Lake near Slough Creek.

Jefferson Co. Sheriff Jeff Herrig told KSNT News that they received the call around 8:20 p.m. about a possible drowning of a man believed to be in his early twenties.

Herrig said friends told authorities the man did not come out of the water after retrieving a ball that had gone into the lake.

“They were just hanging out having a good time in the water, said Herrig. “Just spending the warm day out at Perry Lake.

The man’s name has not been identified at this time.
