A witness's tip about a missing fisherman's last known location might have helped recover the man's body.
Divers looking for Jeremy Spires, 33, of Batesburg-Leesville, moved their search location out from shore about 50 yards based on the tip and found a body late in the day Monday, Department of Natural Resources spokesman Lt. Robert McCullough said.
The Newberry County Coroner's Office is working to positively identify the body.
Spires went missing at dusk Friday when his empty boat was found off Dreher Island in the northwest area of the lake.
