A 24-year-old man was found dead after he vanished while swimming with friends in Mississippi, news outlets report.
His friends also struggled against the current, WJTV reported, but they were able to make it to shore.
Crews began searching the area, but the current and debris made their efforts difficult, officials told the outlet.
Nearly two days after he went missing, Mendoza’s body was found at the bottom of the river just after noon Saturday, May 20, police told Magnolia State Live.
Authorities worked to recover his body from the river on Saturday, WLBT reported.
No other information had been released as of Sunday, May 21.
Flowood is just outside of Jackson.
