ATLANTA, Ga. (CBS46) - Dive teams recovered the body of a missing swimmer from Lake Acworth Sunday morning.

On Friday, Acworth police said witnesses told them they saw a female, later identified as 46-year-old Darla Frey of Rockmart, on a raft in the water, then later observed the same raft without Frey.

Police said crews were out on the lake using sonar equipment from 5:00 p.m. until 11:30 p.m. Friday but was called off due to weather.

The Cobb County Police Department’s Dive Team, the Cobb County Fire Department and Department of Natural Resources continued the search for Frey from Saturday into Sunday morning.

The Acworth Police Department would like to remind everyone the importance of personal flotation devices while enjoying activities on the lake.
