BERTIE COUNTY, N.C. (WAVY) — Officials say  they have found the body of a swimmer who went missing in Bertie County last week.

Bertie County Sheriff John Holley said A 20-year-old man was swimming with friends in the Roanoke River on Friday, when he reportedly jumped off the dock and got pulled under.

Heavy rains that caused high waters along the river made search efforts difficult, officials said.

Officials say his body was found on June 4.
