BRYAN CO., GA (WTOC) - The Department of Natural Resources Law Enforcement Division confirmed that crews recovered the body of a missing boater who went missing in the Ogeechee River in North Bryan County.
DNR identified the boater as 22-year-old Victor Gutierrez of Mexico. Cpl. Bill Bryson said Gutierrez was here on a work visa.
Investigators say Gutierrez and two other men were not wearing life jackets when their canoe capsized Sunday near Morgan's Bridge Landing in Ellabell.
DNR is asking the body to be sent to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation crime lab for an autopsy, but believe the death was accidental.
