TUXEDO, N.C. (AP) -- Divers have recovered the body of a Hendersonville teenager who was presumed drowned in Lake Summit in Henderson County. 

Sheriff's Maj. Frank Stout says in a statement that divers recovered the body of 19-year-old Traverious "Tre" Carter from Lake Summit around 2:35 p.m. Wednesday.  

Stout said divers from the Charlotte Fire Department used advanced sonar technology and found Carter's body in approximately 80 feet of water. 

Carter was swimming Monday evening near a railroad bridge where teens often jump into the water when he started shouting for help. Investigators say his friends could not get to him before he went under. 

Intermittent heavy rain slowed the search for Carter. Darkness forced suspension of the search pn Tuesday before divers continued their search on Wednesday morning.
