COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

The body of a Benedict College student who was reported missing on Wednesday has been found.

According to the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office, the body of Jerrell Ketron Eugene White, 22, was found in a pond near Pleasant Road around 9 a.m. Saturday.

 He had last been seen early Wednesday at a party that deputies believe White left after a fight.

In surveillance video obtained by WSOC-TV, White is seen walking down a neighbor's driveway, climbing over a fence and falling to the ground on the other side. He gets up and stumbles out of the view of the camera.

The sheriff says the pond is near that fence.

Benedict College released a statement on Sunday: “The Benedict College Family is heartbroken and saddened about the passing of Mr. Jerrell Ketron Eugene White. Mr. White was a native of Lancaster, South Carolina and a rising sophomore. He was a bright and talented student who will be dearly missed. Please join the Benedict College Family in praying for our fallen tiger and his family.”
