MARSHALL COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

Authorities identified the body of a man found in the Tennessee River at the Guntersville Dam.

Officials identified the victim as Jackie Rowell, of Guntersville. Rowell was reported missing in 2013 after an extended boat trip.

Rescuers began their search for Rowell in November 2013 when the manager of a marina said he failed to contact them as he normally did after coming back from a trip.

Authorities recovered Rowell's boat shortly after he was reported missing.

No further details have been released at this time. Authorities said the autopsy is still pending.
