Man reported missing on Tims Ford Lake found dead

WINCHESTER, TN (WSMV) -

Rescuers have recovered the body of a man who was reported missing Thursday at Tims Ford Lake in Franklin County.

William Nolan, 39, of Tuscaloosa, AL, was found late Thursday beneath a dock near Park Ridge Circle.

Family members said Nolan had told them he was going for a swim, and they became concerned when he didn't return. Crews from the Franklin County Sheriff's Office, Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency and Franklin County Rescue Squad then searched the area.

Nolan's body was transported to Harton Medical Center Tullahoma, where he was pronounced dead.

Investigators discovered a nearby house had been struck by lightning in the recent past, and faulty wiring from the house to the dock caused the area to be live with electricity.

An autopsy will be performed to determine the exact cause of Nolan's death.
