One person is dead following an accident while fishing in Clarke County.

Chief Deputy Barry White says 56-year-old David Hightower was reported missing Tuesday evening when he never returned from a fishing trip on County Road 611.

White says Hightower’s body was found in a private pond around 7 a.m. Wednesday following an overnight search.

White says no foul play is suspected and that Hightower’s boat capsized.
