(SENECA, S.C.) - Authorities said the body of a 22-year-old Indiana man has been found in Lake Keowee in South Carolina two days after he disappeared.

Oconee County Coroner Karl Addis said a homeowner on the lake discovered Brian Lewis Smith's body early Monday.

Smith was from Anderson, Ind. Addis said he was on the lake in a paddleboat around 2:45 a.m. Saturday when he called a former girlfriend and threatened to kill himself.

The paddleboat he had been using was found several hours later.

Oconee County Emergency Management Director Scott Krein said divers, boats and a helicopter were used in the search for Smith over the weekend.
