A body was found yesterday evening following a search for a missing swimmer at Barkcamp State Park in Belmont County. The man has been identified as 45-year-old David Enterkin.
The Ohio Department of Natural Resources responded to Belmont Lake at around 1:15 yesterday afternoon. He was last seen between his boat and a buoy. Witnesses told officials Enterkin went underwater in the lake and they did not see him resurface.
While the Ohio Department of Natural Resources headed the investigation, multiple agencies were also assisting in the search, including crews from both West Virginia and Ohio.
The body was eventually located around 6:30 p.m.
Enterkin is believed to be from out of town. His family has been notified.
His body has since been sent to the coroner for examination.
