GUNTERSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -
The Marshall County Coroner has identified the victim of a man who died in Lake Guntersville.
The coroner identified the body as 53-year-old Doug Clines of Henegar.
Officials searched for Clines late into the night Saturday. The Jackson County Rescue Squad found the body around 6:30 a.m. Sunday.
The incident happened just before 8 p.m. near Onondaga Circle in South Sauty.
Officials with the Guntersville Rescue Squad confirmed Clines fell off a pontoon boat, went under water and never re-surfaced.
Officials said when the man was found, he was not wearing a life-jacket. Preliminary reports stated that the jacket would only have aided in the search and not in saving him.
The search was a collaborative effort among multiple agencies including the Wakefield Fire Department and the Guntersville Rescue Squad.
Marshall County Rescue called their search off just before 10 p.m. due to a lack of light; the Jackson County/Scottsboro rescue team were still actively searching after dark.
Family members believe the accident was medical related.
