JACKSONPORT, Ark. (AP) - Search crews have recovered the body of a 23-year-old Arkansas man who disappeared while swimming with friends near Jacksonport.
Jonesboro television station KAIT reports (http://is.gd/JdQHu4 ) that crews found the body of 23-year-old Justin Calvillo at about 9 a.m. Saturday. Authorities say Calvillo's body was found about 1 mile downstream from where he was last seen alive at the convergence of the White and Black rivers in northeast Arkansas.
Jackson County Sheriff David Lucas says divers from Lawrence County and Pocahontas initially found Calvillo's body in about 18 feet of water on Friday but were unable to recover it because of a strong current.
The sheriff says witnesses told authorities that Calvillo floated off from friends at about 6:30 a.m. Thursday. Witnesses say Calvillo started struggling and went underwater.
