The Tennessee Wildlife and Resources Agency along with sheriff's deputies have recovered the body of 27-year-old William Bates from Center Hill Lake on Sunday.

According to TWRA boating Officer Nick Luper, the Tullahoma man jumped off a pontoon boat at about 2:15 p.m. Saturday and never resurfaced.

Luper said Bates was at the lake for his bachelor party with his friends during the tragic incident.

Rescue crews searched the water for hours both on Saturday and Sunday.

An autopsy will be performed on Monday; those results should be in several weeks from now.
