The body of a 22-year-old Georgia man who went missing a week ago while tubing in Yellowstone National Park has been recovered.
The National Park Service says a special swift-water team recovered the body of Darien Latty, of Demorest, Georgia, on Saturday from the Yellowstone River.
Latty had been missing since Aug. 11 when he was last seen being swept down the river without a tube or life jacket. Two companions on the trip were able to reach the river's edge.
Searchers finally found his body late Friday about a quarter mile downstream.
Latty was in Yellowstone working as a summer seasonal employee.
