The body of a boater who fell overboard on Tuesday morning has been found in Chickamauga Lake.
Jimmy Martin Hess, 37, disappeared after falling into the lake about 4 a.m. The three remaining people on the sailboat told police they searched for him for an hour before they called 911.
There were reports that the occupants were intoxicated and disoriented, which delayed search efforts for another hour, according to Chattanooga police. There also were reports that there was a fight onboard before Hess went over, police said.
