Chuck Haynes, Director of Pickens County Emergency Management, says the body of a hunter missing since yesterday has been found in Lake Hartwell. The man's body was found this morning in the water on the second day of the search. The man's name and cause of death have not yet been released. Foul play is not suspected.

Officials say the man went missing while hunting with friends early Sunday morning.

Oconee County got the call to 911 around 3:30 a.m. Sunday from the friends, that the man could not be found.

They set up at Lawrence Bridge in Central. The missing man's last known location was in a boat near the bridge. His boat was located near the woods
3 miles from the bridge Sunday morning.

Haynes says they searched roughly a 2 square mile area for the man.

Approximately 40 people looked for him.
