Officials say crews have found the body of a man who went missing after a boating accident in Tennessee.

Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency spokeswoman Amy Snider-Spencer told media that the body of 49-year-old Randy Looney was found Tuesday morning.

He was on a large ski boat Sunday evening when the vessel struck a large object in Kentucky Lake and three people were thrown into the water. Two people were rescued.

The agency said no one on the boat was wearing a life jacket.

Houston County Emergency Management Deputy Director Bill Hall says officials believe the boat may have hit a tree in the water.
