Body Recovered of Missing Boater in the Alabama River

The search for a missing boater who disappeared in the Alabama River after he went under while swimming has ended.

Dive teams recovered the body of 58-year-old Henry F. King of Thomasville around 8 o’clock Thursday evening.

King’s father, Henry C. King, says his son was celebrating his 58th birthday with family on a pontoon boat when he fell overboard.

King says they tried, but were unable to get Henry F. out of the fast-moving river.

The ALEA Marine Patrol, The Monroe County Rescue Squad, and Daphne Search and Rescue were all a part of the search.
