The body of a man from Plymouth has been found in a lake in Tennessee.

The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency says the body of 30-year-old Andrew Ehrman was discovered Saturday in Cherokee Lake, about 50 miles northeast of Knoxville.

A spokesman for the agency said Ehrman was swimming with friends Friday night when the wind picked up. Three friends made it back to their boat, but they say Ehrman disappeared below the surface of the water.

Investigators say alcohol does not appear to be a factor.
