ELK POINT, S.D. - Authorities have recovered the body of a Florida man from the Missouri River near Elk Point in southwestern South Dakota.


Union County Sheriff Dan Limoges says the body of 27-year-old Chris Reeves, of Tallahassee, Florida, was found at about 1 p.m. Friday.

Reeves was swept away while swimming with friends Wednesday afternoon. Deputies have said that Reeves was not a strong swimmer and was not wearing a life vest at the time.

It was the third drowning in the Burbank Beach area on the river in three years.

An autopsy is planned.
