Teen's body recovered from Mountain Island Lake

- The body of a swimmer who went missing Thursday evening in Mountain Island Lake has been found, according to the Mount Holly Police Department. 

Authorities say Jacob Turner's body was found about 12:45 p.m. Friday. Officials say the 19-year-old was with a group of swimmers in a cove when he went missing.

Multiple agencies including Charlotte Fire, Mount Holly Fire, the Cook's Fire Department and the Lucia-Riverbend Fire Department began the search after receiving a call just before 7:30 p.m. on Thursday.

Rescuers had to suspend their search at 10:30 p.m. due to the growing darkness, and resumed the search around 9:00 a.m. Friday morning.

"All I could think about was my brother laying on the bottom of the lake last night," Turner's sister told FOX 46.

Turner's family has been notified.
