(KAIR)--A search of Lake Perry ends with the recovery of a body.

That follows a search launched Wednesday evening after the man was reported as a drowning victim.

The victim Thursday afternoon was identified publicly as 19-year-old Adam Perkins, a resident of the Jefferson County community of Grantville.

Jefferson County Sheriff Jeff Herrig tells MSC News Perkins was among a group of people at the lake Wednesday evening when he disappeared in the water on the south end of the lake. ““He was out with some friends, and they saw him [when] he jumped in the water to go retrieve a beach ball,” Herrig said. “I don't know if he had cramps, or something going on, and ended up yelling for help, and they thought he was joking around and he never came back up. They couldn't find him at that point so they called us.”

Herrig's office was notified around 8:30 Wednesday night, and a search of the water was initiated.

Ending late Wednesday night due to weather conditions, the search resumed Thursday morning.

Herrig says Perkins' body was recovered around 10:20 Thursday morning.
