LAKE HARTWELL — Authorities say the body of a 23-year-old Georgia man was recovered by divers Sunday morning at 10:30 a .m. in Lake Hartwell near Fair Play.

According to investigators, Logan U. Wolfe was on the lake Saturday when he reportedly fell from a boat at around 1:10 p.m.

Emergency personnel searched the lake from Saturday afternoon until Sunday morning before finding Wolfe, investigators say.

Oconee County Coroner Karl Addis said the body was recovered in a water depth of 55 feet.
