Officials say the body of a 19-year-old was recovered from a lake in Rowan County Wednesday afternoon.

The incident happened around 3 p.m. on the 400 block of Lakeshore Drive, which is in the Fisherman's Cove area of High Rock Lake in Salisbury. Officials say the 19-year-old male victim jumped off a dock and did not resurface.

Friends swimming with the victim tried to find him then called for help. Rescue workers used sonar, and found the victim in an area of the lake where the water is between eight and ten feet deep just before 4 p.m.

The victim's name has not been released.
