The body of Roger Milby has been found in the waters of Lake Martin.

Teams of rescuers searched for Milby, 58, of Opelika on Lake Martin after he was reported missing Monday by his wife.

Alabama Law Enforcement Agency’s (ALEA) Marine Patrol along with personnel from the Alexander City Fire and Police departments and the Alexander City/Tallapoosa County Rescue Squad were involved in the search.

Milby’s truck was located by law enforcement at Coley Creek Boat Ramp Tuesday and shortly after his boat was recovered just up river north of Camp ASCCA.

Law enforcement could be seen searching Milby’s boat for clues as to how he entered the water.
