Body of second missing boater recovered on Tennessee River, officials say

HARDIN COUNTY, Tenn. — The Hardin County Fire Department recovered a second unidentified body of a missing boater from the Tennessee River, according to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency.

Search crews recovered the body around 8 a.m. this morning around Shiloh National Military Park.

The body was sent to the medical examiner’s office in Memphis for an autopsy and identification.

The body was recovered within one mile of the first missing boater recovered yesterday.

Both bodies were recovered approximately nine miles from Pickwick Dam.

Over the last 18 days, search crews have conducted surface and sonar scans in attempts to locate the missing boaters.

A Stratos boat containing 43-year old Kenneth Driver and two 15-year-old boys was last seen in a picture taken above the dam on Feb. 22 between 8 and 8:30 a.m.

The three occupants and the 20-foot boat went through the floodgates at the dam.

The three people were reported missing on Feb. 23 after they failed to return from an Obion County club tournament.
